Colde’s ‘When Dawn Comes Again’: Release date and how to stream collab with EXO's Baekhyun
R&B singer Colde and EXO's Baekhyun are long-time collaborators but this is the first time that the two are singing together
Fans of Colde and EXO's Baekhyun were pleasantly surprised when the two got together to release ‘When Dawn Comes Again.’ While Colde is still active, the EXO member has temporarily halted his activities since he enlisted in the military for his mandatory service in May. However, he has been surprising fans now and then by releasing pre-recorded content. He also revealed that he has OSTs lined up and a couple of collaborations.
Colde and Baekhyun have worked together on numerous occasions. Previously, Colde participated in the making of Baekhyun’s tracks ‘Diamond’ and ‘Love Again’. He also produced ‘Love Scene’, which was featured in Baekhyun’s latest album 'Bambi' before the EXO member’s enlistment. However, ‘When Dawn Comes Again’ is special since we get to hear the two artists record and sing together for the first time.

Release date and time
Colde’s single 'When Dawn Comes Again' featuring Baekhyun was released on July 21 at 6 pm KST (July 22 at 5 am ET).
How to listen
The digital single is available on all major music streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, MelOn and more.
The music video stars actor Nam Yoon-soo of ‘Extracurricular’ fame. The actor is seen walking alone in a gloomy atmosphere, introspecting and taking in the various unpopulated areas of the city. Watch the music video below.
Colde composed and arranged the track, as well as wrote the lyrics for it. The R&B ballad is sort of a breakup song as he talks about the thoughts that come across when he can’t sleep. He talks about the emptiness that one feels after a breakup and how one spends their time missing their ex. The song debuted at #1 on Bugs and entered other reputable Korean charts like MelOn and Genie.
Colde's last song before ‘When Dawn Comes Again’ was a collaborative single, ‘My Lips Like Warm Coffee’, which features Chungha and was released on June 8. His upcoming projects includes the OST for web drama ‘Blue Birthday’ starring Red Velvet's Yeri and Pentagon's Hongseok. The track ‘It’s You’ will be released on August 24.
