'Still Dreaming', which released on January 20, marks TXT's second studio album in total, following after the 2019 Korean LP 'The Dream Chapter: Magic'.
As signaled by the album's title 'Still Dreaming' brings a message of positivity and hope. TXT member Taehyun spoke of the album's inspiration, saying, “Our first Japanese studio album STILL DREAMING delivers the message that, like our name, we gathered under one dream to build a new tomorrow," according to Pinkvilla. "I hope that many will be able to listen to this album and relate to the messages as well as find comfort," he added.
The album features a total of 10 songs, including 'Can't You See Me?', 'Angel Or Devil', and the pre-release single 'Force' (released on January 10). Like the album itself, 'Force' has already seen notable success, ranking No. 1 on Japan's Line Music Song Top 100 Daily Chart for seven consecutive days and at No. 1 on the weekly version of the chart dated January 13 to 19. Additionally, 'Force' has been chosen as the theme song for Season 2 of the Japanese manga series 'World Trigger'.
