(G)I-DLE announced their first comeback one year and two months after the release of ‘I Burn’, the mini-album that was released in January 2021 when the group had six members in total. With the departure of Soojin in August 2021, all members of the group started focussing on their solo careers, with Soyeon appearing on the MBC survival show ‘My Teenage Girl’ as one of the homeroom teachers (mentors).

On the other hand, Minnie worked on the lyrics of the single ‘Already’ with Soyeon and producer Houdini whereas Yuqi worked on the lyrics of the song ‘Polaroid’ with members of the production team - Blatinum, BOYTOY, and PLZ. Being one of their most self-produced albums, Neverlands (their fans) can expect a much wider range of musical capabilities from (G)I-DLE.

Concept

On March 1, the girl group released the ‘Risky’ version of the concept photos for ‘I Never Die’ where they radiated unrivaled energy with their intense and deep eyes gazing into the camera. The shots that were released were solo photos of each of the five members as well as a group photo of all members together.

The group photo showcases the five luxurious and chic (G)I-DLE members with a monotone effect. On the other hand, solo photos reveal all the members but Soyeon under a red light. Soyeon alone was seen in a sepia-toned image, making fans wonder if the concept of the album is about putting the talented member at the forefront for the comeback.
