Montage is the sixth extended play by South Korean boy band Block B, released on November 13, 2017.[1] The Japanese edition of the album was released on December 6,[2] over a year after their last studio album My Zone. The album includes two singles, one of which is the Korean version of the track "My Zone", originally released in Japanese on the group's My Zone (Japan 1st Album).[3] The other single is "Shall We Dance", the title track, and was released on November 7.

Background and release[edit]

Block B previewed the poster for Montage at midnight on October 18,[4] revealing the date of the album's release. On October 26, the group released teaser images for the group and each member. More teaser images were released on October 27 and 28, with the title track being revealed on October 29. On October 31, the title of the album and the track list were revealed. Two more images were released on November 1, of members Park Kyung and Jaehyo, followed by U-Kwon and P.O on November 2, and B-Bomb, Zico, and Taeil on November 3. The teaser for "Shall We Dance" was released on November 4, and on November 5 they released a preview of all five songs from the album on their Instagram page.

Although originally set for release on November 10, the album was postponed until November 13 due to a production delay.[5] The Japanese edition of the album was released on December 6.[6]

Kyung and Zico co-wrote lyrics for "Shall We Dance" and "One Sided", while Kyung composed "One Sided" and "Like This", and Zico composed "Shall We Dance" and "My Zone".
