This morning JYP Entertainment released an additional two teaser track cards for the songs “On&On” and “Icarus”. Both JB, listed as Defsoul, and Jinyoung have participated in the making of the new tracks — meaning that the duo has participated in the song writing for at least half of the album.
With four more teaser track cards still scheduled to be released it may be revealed that JJ Project participated in writing or composing each song on their comeback album — something rare in the music industry.
On the track card for “On&On” JB says:
“저 빛은 나를 자꾸 비추고 어두운 나의 모습 들추고 슬픈데
안 슬픈 척해 아픈데 안 아픈 척해”
” That light keeps shining on me, exposing a dark side of me. Sad, but pretending not to be. Hurt, but pretending not to be”
The name of the 4th track card “Icarus” refers to a story from Greek mythology about Icarus and his father Daedalus escaping from King Minos of Crete with wings made of wax and feathers. Although advised by his father to not fly too close to either the sea or sun because of how the moisture or heat would affect the wax based wings. Too entranced by the joy of flying Icarus flew too close to the sun, his wings melted, and he fell into the sea.
Jinyoung’s narration for this song is:
“절대 포기하지 못해 쓰러지지 못해 꿈을 위해서
난 한곳만 바라봐”
“I can’t give up. I can’t disappear. There’s only one thing that I hope for my dream”
