    Stray Kids will release their new mini album "樂-STAR" (Rock Star) and the title track "Rock" on November 10th.

    Stray Kids has been gaining momentum as the "fourth generation of K-pop" with three consecutive No. 1 albums, "ODDINARY" and "MAXIDENT" in 2022 and "★★★★★ (5-STAR)" in June 2023, topping the U.S. BillBoArd 200. As part of the "5-STAR Dome Tour 2023," which marked the first K-pop 4th generation boy group to enter four major dome venues in Japan - Fukuoka PayPay Dome, Banterin Dome Nagoya, Kyocera Dome Osaka, and Tokyo Dome - the group's eight concerts in four Japanese cities were sold out in record time, with more than 2.5 million pre-registrations. The group entered KSPO DOME with "Stray Kids 2nd World Tour "MANIAC" Seoul Special (UNVEIL 11)" in September last year, and continued to showcase their remarkable growth by selling out their solo concert "Stray Kids '5-STAR Dome Tour 2023 Seoul Special (UNVEIL 13)" in October this year at Gocheok Dome, one of the largest indoor venues in Korea.

    In July 2023, they became the first K-pop artist to headline Lollapalooza Paris, where they enthralled 60,000 people and lit up the night sky in Paris, France. In September, the group made their first appearance at the '2023 MTV Video Music Awards' held at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, USA, where they were honored to win the 'Best K-Pop' category for the title track "Special" from their latest release "★★★★★ (5-STAR)." 3RACHA, the group's production team consisting of Bangchan, Changbin, and Han, performed at the '2023 Global Citizen Festival' in New York City's Central Park, where they delivered an express performance and captivated the local audience. STRAYKIDS, the "K-pop sensation" who has been flying around the global stage, has released a new mini-album and is aiming for higher heights.

    "樂-STAR" is their first album in about fIVE months since the release of their third full-length album, and it has an organic connection with its predecessor, "★★★★★ (5-STAR). The group's confidence to create music that can be enjoyed by all listeners around the world is evident in the album's bold message, "Our rock continues no matter what." The album's title reflects the group's ambition to become rock stars of an era with the meaning of special people who know how to enjoy themselves.

    The musical pride of STRAYKIDS, which invited global K-pop listeners to join in the festivities of those who know how to have fun, can be seen again in the tracklist of "樂-STAR. Starting with the title track, "Rock (樂)," the album features eight other songs, including "MEGAVERSE," "Blind Spot," "COMFLEX," "Cover Me," "Leave," the Korean version of their first Japanese EP album title track "Social Path (Feat. LISA)," and "Rock (樂) (Rock Ver.). Having achieved three consecutive No. 1s on the Billboard 200 with their self-created music, the group will be honored in the credits of the new mini album, heralding the birth of another well-crafted work and presenting a musical 'delight'.

    3RACHA, who have created the title tracks for every album they have released since their debut in March 2018, from their official debut song "District 9" to their comeback title track "Rock," will be reinforcing their unique genre of "straight kids" with this album. In addition to member Hyunjin, Kevin Gomringer and Tim Gomringer of the German hip-hop producer duo Cubeatz, who have participated in many albums by famous international hip-hop artists such as Travis Scott and Drake, and VERSACHOI, Millionboy, and JUN2 collaborated with leading domestic and international writers to enhance the compleTENess of the album.

    The title track "Rock (樂)" is a song that excites listeners through its unique melody. "Welcome to paradise (rock) Day by day (rock) Rock in the city (rock) If you enjoy (rock), you can't stop (rock) Trouble (rock) Night of adversity (rock) If you stay up all night (rock) At the end of the struggle, you will fall (rock)" and other lyrics that utilize 'rock' to delIVEr fresh stimulation. In addition, the repetitIVE sound in the chorus adds a rock element to the song, giving it a strong addictIVE and intense feel that only Stray Kids music has.

    In early October 2023, the group released a prologue video and opened the prelude to their full-scale comeback. Borrowing the dreams and perspectIVEs of a child before a concert, the new song's 'joy and pain' was explained in a solid storyline to arouse fans' curiosity, and then the 'pleasure' of watching the video was enhanced by the atmospheric narration, colorful video effects, and the members' colorful visuals.

    With the new mini album "樂-STAR" and the title track "Rock (樂)," which has a special seal, STRAYKIDS will once again delIVEr fresh sensations to the global music market in 2023 and lead the trend.
