The title track, “Alcohol-Free,” was written, composed, and arranged by J.Y. Park, the representative producer of JYP Entertainment, with composer Lee Hye-seol joining in on the arrangement. And in addition to “Alcohol-Free,” the lyrics for the new songs on this album were written by the members of TWICE.

The trailer for the album was filled with the joyful energy of a midsummer music festival. Over a sound reminiscent of a South American beach, they not only created a cool summer atmosphere by dancing and making cocktails with flower petals against a sunset backdrop, but also depicted a scene where everyone sat down at a round table to celebrate.
