"new" is a song by South Korean singer, Yves. It is the first track in the single " Yves".
Yves asks a question in Eden. “Is it really a bad thing to disobey God?” If someone has already decided our fate, wouldn’t it be a better life to stand up and against that fate?
Even if it’s not something grand such as God or fate, Yves sings that she will not surrender herself to any walls or glass ceilings she may have to face.
The title track “new” is a song where Yves declares that she will be herself no matter what kind of hardships, pain, and frustration faces her. It is the first track released in the genre of Soultronica in Korea, with Yves’ confident voice laid on top of bold beats to prove LOOΠΔ’s new concept and quality.
The music video for “new” was directed by DigiPedi. He captures fatal images of Yves, who takes a bite of the apple on purpose to be exiled to the earth.
눈을 떠 바라본 니 모습은 다가갈 수 없을 듯 눈부셔 너처럼 되고 싶던 내 맘이 너로 가득 채워져 물들어 점점 더 태양에 다가서려 타버린 날개 짓 속에 초라한 내 모습 그때 겨우 알게 된 내 new days All my life by my life 나를 봐줘 이제 All my life by my life 달콤한 유혹처럼 피어난 내 안에 또 다른 내 모습 거울 안에 비춰진 내 얼굴이 누구인지 나에게 묻게 돼 차가운 새벽녘 공기 속에 비로소야 뛰는 심장 당당히 날 바라보던 순간 알게 된 내 new face All my life by my life 날아올라 이제 All my life by my life 손을 뻗어 닿을 것만 같았던 무대 위에 조명들이 멀어지고 Light 내 맘 속에 불빛이 조용히 내 꿈을 비춰줄 때 새로운 내가 날 알게 된 거야 Always always all my life 새로워진 new days All my life by my life Always all my life 나를 믿을래 all my life 누가 뭐래도 by my life 밝은 빛으로 all my life 나를 안을래 all my life

The look of you when I open my eyes So bright that I couldn’t dare to approach My heart that wants to be like you Gets colored, filled with you Willing to get closer to the sun Flapping of the burnt wings My miserable appearances Only then I learnt my new days All my life, by my life Take a look at me now All my life, by my life Blooming like sweet seduction Another shape of me found inside of me My face in the mirror I ask myself who it is In the cold breeze of early morning Pulsating heart That moment I looked myself squarely I realized my new face All my life, by my life Soar up into the sky now All my life, by my life It all seemed to reachable The lights on the stage drift apart Light, the beam inside of my heart When it shines on my dream quietly The new me learnt about me Always, always, all my life Refreshed new days All my life, by my life Always, all my life I’ll trust myself, all my life No matter what, by my life With bright lights, all my life I’ll hold myself, all my life
