The tune was originally made for their debut album, “Play,” which came out in April. But the song’s release was delayed as the song was thought to be better suited for the fall, their label YG Entertainment stated.

The rookie group plans to hold its first concerts from Nov. 21-23 at Blue Square Samsung Card Hall in Seoul, as part of the national tour “Akmu Camp.”

Akdong Musician rose to prominence after it won the TV audition program “K-pop Star 2” in 2012. The siblings signed a contract with YG Entertainment in May 2013.
