The "Spring Breeze" music video teaser was posted on November 13. The track list was revealed on November 15.[3][4][5][6] The "Spring Breeze" video was released on November 19 along with the album, with Billboard calling the song a "smooth dance track that leans into lilting synths and alt rock instrumentals while sprinkling in orchestral strings, horns and piano elements to craft a stirring melody".[1] The Korea Times labeled the song alternative dance.[7] The video features the group performing "clean-cut, interpretive choreography" along with intercut scenes of the group hanging out.[1]

The album was characterized as featuring songs about the members' feelings about the group's upcoming disbandment.[8]
