In an official press release, Big Hit notes that the track pinpoints the growing pains of the members as they’ve gotten older.

The five-track album begins with “Blue Orangeade,” a synth-heavy track about meeting your opposite, followed by “CROWN”. Up next is “Our Summer,” a relaxed listen produced by The Futuristics who have worked with Halsey and Selena Gomez in the past. “Cat & Dog” is packed with marimba melodies on top of an experimental trap beat. Closing out the album is “Nap of a star,” a slow, harmonious song which features an electric guitar.
At the moment, pre-orders of The Dream Chapter: STAR have surpassed 100,000 copies within three days in Korea . TXT’s first album is a look into K-pop‘s rise to being a part of the mainstream music conversation. Without a doubt, this path was forged by group’s like Big Hit’s BTS and is being led by group’s like NCT 127, BLACKPINK and more.
