“From debut until now, ‘DECOHERENCE’ marks the end of an era, the end to the trilogy that started in ‘Bomb,’ and I’m so grateful to all who have been by my side since the beginning. I will work harder to bring you even cooler projects in the future, so please look forward to the next chapter of the AleXa Universe.” AleXa
Hailed as one of K-pop’s most exciting breakout acts, global rookie AleXa made a long-awaited comeback today with “REVOLUTION,” a multi-genre power anthem consisting of Hip Hop, Latin and Symphonic moments to highlight the final showdown between AleXa and ZB Corp.
“REVOLUTION” is the title track off AleXa’s second extended play DECOHERENCE, and will see the finale to AleXa’s three-part ground-breaking music video concept. The AI leading a rebellion storyline (detailed in “Allegory of the Cave,” a hidden track on the physical copy of the new EP) began in “Bomb,” was followed by “Do Or Die” and concludes with “REVOLUTION.”
In the music video, AleXa finds herself in the middle of an epic battle with evil masterminds ZB Corp. Suspended in a dark liquid tank with sensors attached to her neck and arms, AleXa’s body is numb but her mind is conscious, processing all her past memories of her previous simulations. Suddenly, she awakens and breaks through to the surface. AleXa will do more than escape--she will lead an uprising.
“We created the music video with the idea of bringing the exciting and dynamic visuals to life, giving the final chapter of AleXa’s origin storyline the grand finale it deserves,” says Angelina Foss, Head of ZB Label, “Having AleXa always be so open for new challenges was the key that made this entire project possible. Our team worked very hard, but most importantly, we all had so much fun in the process of creating ‘REVOLUTION.’”
On the DECOHERENCE EP, AleXa joined forces with world-famous composers who have created chart-topping songs for acts such as BTS and Red Velvet and producer Hwang Sungjin of RBW, label of MAMAMOO and Oneus, who has contributed lyrics to continue to evolve her sound and grow her artistry. Celebrations for the EP release are kicked off in collaboration with Twitter, who once again joined forces with AleXa to bring a virtual live showcase for fans watching from home. The virtual hangout will include the worldwide debut performance of “Revolution.”
AleXa exploded onto the scene with her multilingual debut, “Bomb," in October of last year, breaking into the Top 10 of Billboard’s “World Digital Song Sales Chart” within its first week of release. In 2020, AleXa inked a deal with ICM Partners, home to an all-star roster of award-winning artists including Nicki Minaj and Khalid, to set a global debut in motion, and was crowned the winner in the “New K-Wave Next Artist” category of this year’s “Soribada Best K-Music Awards,” one of the biggest award shows of the season.
