NCT has released their next album as a full-membered group, and they’ve worked with a range of European producers for it!
“RESONANCE PT.1” is the first part of the group’s second full album. Part of the project, “NCT 2020”, the album combines members from all NCT units – NCT 127, NCT Dream, NCT U and WayV – as well as two new members, Shotaro and Sungchan.
UK-based composers wrote the album’s first song, “Make a Wish (Birthday Song)”. Scottish Grammy-nominated singer Sonny J. Mason produced the song, with English musicians Karen Poole and Bobii Lewis writing the lyrics.
Mason previously wrote the song “Wow Thing” for a project girl group consisting of Chungha, GFRIEND’s SinB, Red Velvet’s Seulgi and (G)I-DLE’s Jeon Soyeon alongside Poole. As well as this, Poole has written several Kpop songs, including EXO’s “Trouble” and Kim Donghan’s “Tipsy”. Lewis also gained a second credit for the song “Déjà Vu”, performed by NCT Dream.
