In the MV teaser, the animation shows a person communicating in sign language…
…and the description contains a warm message for his fans, also revealing the drop date for his new album!
“Midnight Blue” is a track that gives a warm embrace to the audience with a calm piano melody and warm vocal tone.
Like the lyrics “I will cover your heart with a blanket in the dark midnight”, hope this track can be a comfort to anyone who is enduring its wound alone.
