The group worked with famous producers Kim Hyung Seok and Brian Kim of Zigzag Note.

Singer-songwriter Jay Park also contributed on the album by writing the song entitled, For You. A representative of NH Media stated, ...this will be the band's first release since becoming an international K-pop sensation and the band is getting ready to wow the fans.... It is the first time that the group worked with Kim Hyun Suk whom contributed a lot for the album.
