Bollywood Hungama reported on Monday that the band’s title track ‘0X1=LOVESONG (I Know I Love You)’ featuring Seori is the unequivocal declaration of a boy’s first love. The song expresses a boy’s certainty in the love he feels for ‘you,’ who came to him in a world of chaos. The title uses numbers to visually represent that in this world of zero (0), ‘you’ are my one (1) and only. The song is the collaborative effort between producers of HYBE Labels’ Slow Rabbit and “hitman” bang, American singer-songwriter and Rock Hip hop artist Mod Sun and No Love For The Middle Child as songwriters, and RM of BTS who helped pen the lyrics.
‘Magic’ marks TXT’s first English song. The track is dedicated to ‘you’ whose magic thaws the ice that held me. In addition, ‘Anti-Romantic‘ sees the involvement of producer and songwriter Alex Hope as well as artist Salem Ilese, while ‘Frost’ involves London-based artist Ashnikko.
The album is set for release on May 31.
