MCND's new mini-album, titled "The Earth: Secret Mission Chapter. 1," is composed of six songs, one of which is the title track, "Movin' (To You...)."
This album continues the boy group's worldview that is about five boys who have been preparing a performance while admiring Earth for a long time from the planet Kepler1649c, which looks similar to Earth. The boys will then come to Earth to pursue their dream of performing on stage in front of their fans.
During MCND's comeback showcase that was broadcast through the group's official YouTube channel on Aug. 31 at 4 p.m. KST, the members introduced their third mini-album.
MCND Bic explained that "The Earth: Secret Mission Chapter. 1" will be about them carrying out hidden missions all over the world, and after finishing these missions, they will be able to meet the fans and perform for them on stage.
When asked to share a part of preparing the album, MCND Castle J revealed that the vocal line of the group suffered a lot because there were a lot of high notes in the songs. He added that the rappers also did a lot of rapping in their new album.
