The song has been released as part of NCT’s new project, [STATION : NCT LAB], the NCT music archiving project that will showcase NCT’s colourful music, including solo songs, self-composed songs, and unit songs.
The title ‘coNEXTion’ is an invitation to step into the future and a statement that everyone is connected. “coNEXTion” here has the meaning of going together, always connected in place and time in the future. In the latest episode of NCT News, Taeil and Haechan described ‘coNEXTion (Age Of Light)’ as an alternative hip-hop song that uses traditional Korean instruments; Mark has co-written its lyrics.
