While the group couldn't roll out a full-group album in 2022, which usually happened around the end of the year, SM Entertainment surprised fans by making an announcement of the early release of NCT 2023. For this comeback, all the currently-twenty members will be participating in the album, leaving out the members who recently left the group - Sungchan, Shotaro, and Lucas.

The next song is called THE BAT, which includes members Taeil, Johnny, Yuta, Jungwoo, Hendery, Jeno, and Jisung. The song's genre, which is defined as "hyper pop," comes in stark contrast with the album's interlude.

"A medium tempo pop song that gives you a fresh and witty feeling of living freely as if everyday is your birthday, drawing attention where you can meet harmony."
