In May, NCT 127 shared their sweeping “Highway to Heaven” with the world through a special black-and-white music video, and now they’re back with the English version of the song.
Zane Lowe premiered the new variant today (July 18) on Beats 1 Radio. “Highway to Heaven” was originally released on the act’s May We Are Superhuman EP, fronted by the song “Superhuman.” The album debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200.
Upon the release, NCT 127 tweeted that they hope their fans, NCTzen, “love it as much as we do.”
The new lyrics thematically diverge from the Korean version of “Highway to Heaven,” which focused largely on success and potential, while the English one is more romantic. It references U.S. Route 101, the highway that connects the west coastal states of the U.S., as a path to take with an object of affection.
A music video for the song is set to drop on Monday (July 22).
Take a listen to the new English version of the song below.
