Los Angeles, CA (August 18, 2023) – Global hitmakers aespa return with the infectious new single “Better Things.” Listen HERE via Warner Records. Arriving on the heels of their acclaimed third mini album MY WORLD, the K-pop quartet’s latest offering bristles with polished hooks and empowering lyrics. “Better Things” is accompanied by a stunning visual, which showcases each member’s unique personality.

“I wasn’t ever sure that I loved you, but I was always sure you would let me down,” the group sings defiantly over squiggly synths and spicy percussion. “I wasn’t ever sure if I’d trust you, but I’m so goddamn sure my energy is just too precious to waste.” KARINA, GISELLE, WINTER and NINGNING then drive the point home on the instantly catchy chorus: “I got better things to do with my time.” With its relatable message and summery sound, “Better Things” has all the ingredients of a crossover hit.

“Better Things” follows MY WORLD, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Album Sales Chart and delivered an arsenal of addictive jams including Spicy,” ‘Til We Meet Again,” and “Welcome To MY World[feat. nævis]. Additionally, aespa made history at the Governors Ball festival in New York and Outside Lands festival in San Francisco as the first-ever K-Pop group to appear at either festival and recently received their first MTV Video Music Award nomination for Best K-Pop.

The group’s momentum can be traced back to 2022 when they made their U.S. festival debut at Coachella, delivered their first official late night U.S. TV debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and kicked off Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in Central Park. aespa then celebrated the release of Girls – The 2nd Mini Album which also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart with the New York Times dubbing it “one of the year’s most impressive K-Pop releases precisely because of its dual mastery of the intricate and the elegant.”

With “Better Things,” aespa ups the ante even further, serving a powerful yet playful message that everyone can dance to.
