STAYs! Brace yourselves as Stray Kids are gearing for their official Japan debut

On March 18, K-Pop idol group Stray Kids will make an official Japan debut. Through their official social media accounts, they announced that they will be launching a new full-length album. However, they won’t be making an appearance in Japan. This was due to the ongoing travel restrictions between South Korea and Japan caused by the COVID-19.

According to JYP Entertainment, the group’s management company, Stray Kids is set to release a 27-track album, “SKZ2020” simultaneously in South Korea and Japan on March 18th.

Concurrently, they unveiled the official music video for their track “Levanter” Japanese version through Stray Kids Japan Official YouTube channel.

On March 11, JYP Entertainment released the track list through their official social media accounts. Their SKZ2020 album bears three singles in Japanese. It comprises of “My Pace”, “Double Knot” and “Levanter”.

Some of the tracks were past songs from their previous albums. The album will be soon officially available in Japanese market upon their debut.

Stray Kids pre-released “My Pace” and “Double Knot” separately in Japan on January 31 and February 18. Respectively, both tracks topped the Line Music real-time chart.

Also, JYP Entertainment released their solo teasers for the upcoming debut.

Previous tracks from past albums such as “Hellevator” and “Levanter” comprises their new album.

“There’s no schedule planned for Stray Kids in Japan this month,” JYP said. Nonetheless, the group may come up with a Japanese event depending on how the situation develops.

Meanwhile, the group was originally scheduled to perform in Osaka’s Maruzen Intec Arena Osaka. It was from March 21-22 as part of its ongoing world tour, District 9: Unlock. Sadly, they canceled the concerts  earlier this month in light of the entry restrictions.
