AceShowbiz - EXO goes sci-fi in their latest music video in support of their new single "Power". In a "Star Wars"-esque animated/live action scenes, the boys are seen weilding guns and fighting for their lives against a gigantic robot that resembles R2-D2 from galaxy far far away.
The clip kicks off with an ominous voice-over from a male hooded animated character, "The universe has transformed, distorted space has been reassembled, warped time has been reset, And the unpurified red force embrace two suns with darkness."
"Power" is taken from the boyband's fourth album repackage "The War: The Power of Music". The single is an EDM genre song with dynamic synth sounds and drum beats. The lyrics talk about how one can become stronger through music that unites everyone into one.
The album will contain twelve songs in total, including three new tracks, "Power", "Sweet Lies" and "Boomerang", in addition to "Ko Ko Bop" which is the hit single from "The War" and the other original songs featured on the original set. The repackaged version is set to arrive on Tuesday, September 5.
Before the repackage was announced, member Baekhyun teased their fans, "Truthfully, we have a repackaged album on the way. There's no reason to hide this... 'Ko Ko Bop' is exactly what it is, an eve or a prequel. The title of our new album is 'The War'. You can see it as us enjoying the eve before the fight, then marching off to the real war. Right now, this is the tip of the iceberg. When we heard the concept, we thought, 'That's SM for you.' Their planning blew my mind."
The group is set to follow up the album release with a performance on "M!Countdown". They will be singing their new single "Power" on the show on Thursday, September 7.
