On April 3rd, fans noticed that the members were together and teasing something big. The teasers continued for almost two months.
On May 28th, Tokuma announced the next EXID album that will be titled “BLESSED”. It is available for pre-order now, and it will be released on August 19th.
Hot and beautiful album art for the two album versions, plus a visual teaser, were released on June 26th for fans to enjoy.
Track Lists and Extras
Both Versions come with these ten tracks:
- L.I.E. (Japanese Version)
- DDD (Japanese Version)
- Ah Yeah (Japanese Version)
- I Love You (Japanese Version)
- Night Rather Than Day, 2020 Arrangement (Japanese Version)
- Bad Girl For You
- Break My Heart
- Cream (Japanese Version)
There will be at least one bonus track on the “Regular Edition”:
- B.L.E.S.S.E.D. (Korean Version)
The original announcement included “Night Rather Than Day, 2020 Arrangement (Korean Version)” as a second bonus track. This has been removed from most sources, but some still mention two bonus tracks in the album introduction text. We cannot be sure which is accurate until EXID clarifies or the album is released.
First Press Limited Edition
The “First Press Limited Edition” comes with a member selfie photo, a photo stand, and a DVD of:
- B.L.E.S.S.E.D. Music Video
- EXID 2019 Summer Tour Live
- Cookie & Cream
- Vaporize Yourself!
It does not come with the bonus track(s) that the “Regular Edition” has, so you’ll want to buy both. 😉
