Day6 Unleash 'Sweet Chaos' In New Music Video. Day6 returned on Tuesday (Oct. 22) to revel, pop-punk style, in how a lover can cause "Sweet Chaos" with their arrival. The song, which fronts the group's newly-released The Book of Us: Entropy LP, is a fierce, yet upbeat, tune ruminating on how plans are overturned and everything is upside down, in a good way, because of the "Sweet Chaos" of another person who has entered one's life. The music video features five members of DAY6 performing the track in sleek suits on a dramatically-lit stage. They are later seen disintegrating, End Game-style, from the feelings of "Sweet Chaos." Bassist-vocalist Young K served as lyricist on "Sweet Chaos," while Jae, Sungjin, and Wonpil also co-wrote the song along with frequent collaborator Hong Ji-sang. The 11-track The Book of Us: Entropy follows the release of DAY6's The Book of Us: Gravity in July, which landed the K-pop band at No. 20 on the Heat seekers Albumschart, dated July 27. The new album is said to depict two different sides of romance, with the first six tracks relaying the sweeter moments and the latter songs depicting the tougher times. (Billboard)

NU'EST Wants You To 'Love Me' In Vibrant New Music Video: K-pop boy band NU'EST offered up a lush romantic ode in the form of their groovy new single "Love Me," out on Monday (Oct. 21). A vibrant deep house track that rhythmically bounces along with the members' warm tones, "Love Me" NU'EST serving up sweet promises of how they'll act in a relationship once the object of their affection returns their feelings. According to the blurb on the YouTube page of the music video for "Love Me," NU'EST use the song to send "the message that one should be more honest when in love in their own direct yet rhythmical way." Throughout the video, the five band members are seen reveling in their candy-like love through a variety of date night activities, such as baking or watching a movie with popcorn, all the while performing the sleek, funky choreography. Towards the end, they blast off Back to the Future style in an old-fashioned car, only to spend the to watch a movie and have fun with one another. The song title also could be seen as a subtle reference to the group's fandom, known as L.O.?.E, who have supported the group's career through its ups and downs. "Love Me" was co-written by Baekho with NU'EST longterm collaborator Bumzu, while JR is credited as a lyricist and Park Gi-tae and Nmore also are credited as songwriters. The new single is featured on the quintet's newly released The Table EP, the group's seventh Korean EP since their start in 2012, and also released on Oct. 21. The album is said to revolve around the theme of love and, "Expresses a variety of emotions and memories that anyone can encounter throughout their lives." The release has a very intimate vibe, with each song on the album said to represent the sort of story that friends and family members share with one another about their romances when sitting around the dinner table. The Table follows the April release of Happily Ever After, which peaked at No. 8 on the World Albums chart. (Billboard)

Tame Impala Hints at New Music With Puzzling Clip. Something's brewing in Parker's house. The Tame Impala maestro and in-demand producer has had a relatively low-key year, during which time he's appeared on SNL and a bunch of festival bills, and released a handful of tracks. A mysterious new teaser now appears on the official Tame Impala website, which is fueling hope that the Aussie psychedelic rock protagonists are prepping a fourth album. In the looped clip, we see Parker in the studio playing with an old-school oscilloscope and real-to-reel audio tapes. There's a pay off at the finish, where we see the muso looking out into the ocean. Tame Impala are probably due a new LP. Their last album was 2015's Currents, which earned Parker and Co. a Brit Award for best international group and set them on the path to festival-headliner status around the globe. The Perth band's breakthrough debut Inner speaker came out in 2010, and their sophomore effort Lonerism arrived in 2012. We know it's coming, we just don't know when. Parker has been working on their fourth studio set for well over a year. "I can't say too much. But it's my main focus right now," he told Billboard in an interview published in August 2018. "All I can say is it's gone back to being my main focus." In March of this year, Tame Impala released "Patience," their first new music since Currents. The track "Borderline" followed the next month.
