NCT U’s next single finally has a release date. Announced yesterday, NCT’s vocal powerhouses Kun, Taeil and rapper YangYang are all set to launch “Rain Day” next week. The single is the third track to be released under NCT’s music archiving project, SM Station: NCT Lab.

In a tweet posted earlier today, the group’s label SM Entertainment described “Rain Day” as a track that “boasts a charming R&B melody.” NCT member and WayV’s leader Kun, who has been instrumental in shaping WayV’s sonic identity, brings his nuanced musical sensibilities to the forthcoming release as the track’s producer, composer, and songwriter. It has also been reported that the 26-year-old multi-hyphenated artist has also arranged the track. Korean news outlet Chosun further reports that the track expresses one’s desire to regain love that’s been left behind. 

The song was first teased in April during an episode of NCT News  (a monthly YouTube segment that summarizes the various NCT activities) where it was revealed WayV’s Kun is working on the next NCT Lab release. On June 22nd, Taeil and YangYang were announced to be working alongside Kun on the collaborative project via NCT News again.

Acting as an extension to SM Station (a digital music project curated by SM Entertainment in 2016), NCT announced NCT Lab on January 28th, 2021, promising fans a deeper look into the group’s musicality. NCT Lab aims to release self-composed tracks either as solo or unit songs through SM Station. The tracks released under the project are ones you’d not find on a regular NCT album, giving the artist an alternative avenue to creatively challenge and express themselves. The first track released under this project was “Child” – a self-composed alt-rock single by rapper, songwriter and NCT Dream’s leader Mark. This was shortly followed by the NCT U release “Conextion” on March 20th. 

In other news, actor-vocalist Doyoung has been teasing NCT 127’s highly-anticipated 2022 comeback via the fan-messaging app Bubble. The group also revealed a few playful spoilers during a YouTube livestream held to celebrate their sixth-anniversary last week. As NCT 127 gear up for their comeback, NCT Dream will be holding their second solo concert. Titled ‘The Dream Show 2: In a Dream,’ the members will be performing for three nights from July 29th to 31st at Seoul’s Gocheok Sky Dome with the final night of the concert scheduled to be live-streamed via Beyond Live. As for NCT’s Chinese sub-unit WayV, member Ten’s arrival back in Seoul after wrapping up his solo schedule in China as a mentor on the dance reality show, Great Dance Crew, spiked a few comeback rumors. It is also worth noting that WayV members have been occasionally conveying their plans for WayV’s highly-anticipated comeback via livestreams and Bubble updates.
