Every comeback for Stray Kids is very special. With fans giving their full support and the group coming up with extremely lovely performances and music video, all the comebacks of the group are mesmerizing. Now Stray Kids are preparing for a return of massive comeback!
Stray Kids released the trailer titled ODDINARY for their upcoming album on February 13, along with the hashtag #StrayKidsComeback. Stray Kids are set to return on March 18 at 1 p.m. KST, according to their trailer (midnight EST). On February 14, pre-orders will start since the album is a paid one.
Felix visits a weird realm called Ordinary, where he meets the other members, who are alternatively intriguing and scary, in the trailer, which promises an epic plot. Their faces also show on other “lost” posters throughout the trailer, which is odd. “Do you want to be ODDINARY?” the trailer asks as the Ordinary sign flickers to the audience indicating the title of the upcoming album.
Take a look at the trailer below!
