Twice reveals track list for upcoming EP 'Between 1&2'
Girl group Twice revealed the track list of its upcoming EP, “Between 1&2,” on Tuesday.
According to the list, the girl group’s new title track is titled “Talk that Talk.” The EP includes six more tracks: “Queen of Hearts,” “Basics,” “Trouble,” “Brave,” “Gone” and “When We Were Kids.”
“Talk the Talk” is composed by local composer collapsedone. He has taken the helm of the group's previous hits “Knock Knock” (2017), “What is Love?” (2018) and “The Feels” (2021).
“Queen of Hearts” is an English track that was arranged by British songwriting and record production duo LDN Noise.
American singer Melanie Fontana took part in writing the lyrics for "Brave." She had also written lyrics for Twice’s “Scientist” (2021) and “I Can’t Stop Me” (2020)
Some of the members also took part in the creative processes for a few songs on the EP.
Chaeyoung is the sole lyricist of the track “Basics.” Jihyo also wrote the lyrics for the song “Trouble” herself and took part in composing the song as well. Dahyun took part in writing the lyrics of tracks “Gone” and “When We Were Kids.”
The upcoming EP comes nine months since Twice last dropped music, with its third full-length album "(Formula of Love) : O+T=〈3" (2021).
It is also the group’s first new music since all nine members renewed their contracts with their agency, JYP Entertainment, earlier this month.
Twice debuted with the EP “The Story Begins” (2015) with the lead song “Like Ooh-Ahh.” The group became widely popular with the song “Cheer Up” (2016) and has since released hits like “TT” (2016), “Feel Special” (2019) and “Alcohol-Free” (2021). The group's members are Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu.
Nayeon became the first member of the group to launch her solo career with the EP "Im Nayeon" and its lead track "POP!" last month. On Sunday, the EP reached No. 7 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, the highest rank achieved by a solo K-pop artist on the chart.
