EXO to release a new album, ‘Don’t Fight the Feeling’ in June. K-pop boyband EXO will be back this June with a new album. The K-pop group announced last night. Exo will release their latest album, Don’t Fight the Feeling, on June 7.
It’ll be their first album since 2019’s Obsession, and it’ll be a “special album” from the band, similar to their seasonal releases in the past. The group revealed details of the upcoming record on their social media accounts last May 11.
They revealed that June 7 is the final date for the comeback and that pre-orders have started in the caption.
The announcement featured a new version of the group’s logo that has been designed to look like a radar map. The image also included the words “Designation: EXO Planet” and “Location: Outer Orbit” on the lower right-hand corner.
The upcoming record will also mark the return of members Xiumin and D.O., following their mandatory military service completion.
EXO teased their album comeback last April through a teaser video featuring the members greeting their fans with the clip titled L-1485 SPOILER.
Members Xiumin, Baekhyun, Kai, D.O., Chanyeol, and Sehun mentioned in the teaser video that they were currently filming the music video for their new song.
A sneak peeks into the music video, members D.O., Xiumin, Baekhyun, Kai, Sehun, and Chanyeol show off the aircraft-inspired set they were filming for their music video.
While exploring the set, the group revealed that the new release would supposedly follow the story of the video for their 2017 hit ‘Power.’
“The story is, in ‘Power’, we all went our separate ways. But we are now back together,” D.O. explained.
He also offered a sneak peek of the choreography, performing some dance moves while a snippet of the song played in the background.
EXO debuted as a 12-member group on April 8, 2012, under SM Entertainment, one of the leading K-pop companies. It has since become a 9-piece act following the departure of Chinese members Luhan, Kris, and Tao.
