Today, on the heels of their grand slam North American debut (which featured appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the American Music Awards carpet, and more) SM Entertainment’s Seoul-based kpop mega-unit and Apple Music’s first-ever kpop Up Next artist, NCT 127, released their first full-length studio album titled “NCT #127 Regular-Irregular,”available everywhere today here.
Boasting a fan base that won’t quit, NCT 127 saw their usual fandom even out West, with fans camping out overnight since Friday for a glimpse of the group’s late night debut on Monday. Accompanied on Kimmel’s outdoor concert stage by spectacular pyro and cryo effects, a sold-out crowd sang along to every word of their new English single “Regular,” that had only just world-premiered hours prior with Beats1/ Zane Lowe (and a surprise skype call from DJ Khaled – watch here).
The multi-genre 11-track “NCT #127 Regular-Irregular” is a storied, highly-conceptualized compilation of tracks that bridge the dream world with reality. The transition between the two worlds are made through the dream-like sixth track “Interlude: Regular to Irregular.” It also features the group’s first-ever all-English version of their pop/ Latin trap title track, “Regular,” produced by renowned hit-makers Vedo, Mike Daley and Mitchell Owens, about the universal dream of striking it rich through success.
“We’ve grown up, and this album really captures our varied talents and gives us a chance to showcase our full performance abilities while experimenting with different styles and genres,” said Johnny. Mark, NCT 127, added, “We can’t wait to bring this project to the fans because we’ve worked so hard and put our whole selves into making this a record that brings the fun out of everyone.”
NCT 127’s “NCT #127 Regular-Irregular” is out everywhere now.
