On Wednesday, NCT 127 held a live session with their fans and announced that September will be a special month for them as they will be releasing their next studio album. While the title of the album has not been disclosed yet, the upcoming record will be the group’s third full-length album, followed by their latest single ‘Save’ from June.
The new album will be their first record in one year and four months as their last repackage album ‘NCT #127 Neo Zone The Final Round’ was released in May 2020.
NCT marked their entry in the industry with their first single ‘Firetruck’ that created a niche for themselves in the industry and went ahead to deliver some of the hits of all time.
The group also grabbed a lot of attention for their unique name. According to reports, the real meaning behind the band’s name is unique as the name itself, as the number 127 is said to be inspired by the longitude number of Seoul, hinting at the group’s home base and symbolizing that they are connected to their roots no matter what.
The group consists of 9 talented artists, including Taeil, Johnny, Taeyong, Yuta, Doyoung, Jaehyun, Mark, Jungwoo and Haechan. In addition, NCT 127 has carried out numerous excellent projects throughout the years and is a sub-group of a larger association, NCT (Neo Culture Technology).
Over five years, the band has successfully smashed several music charts, including their second full album, NCT # 127 Neo Zone, bagging the 5th spot on the Billboard 200 while achieving the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart, World Album chart, Tastemaker Album chart, and Top Current Album Sales.
