You will be well acquainted with our creations. You will be able to remix new tracks to your liking.”
Woozi said, “As a Garage band, we started making music when we were trainees, and it’s a new feeling. The great thing about Apple Garage Band is that it’s easy to access. When I was a student, I first became interested in music and used Garage Band a lot, but I’m glad that many people can listen to Seventeen’s music through Garage Band.”
When asked about their feelings about collaborating with Apple, he said, “It is an honor to collaborate with a global company called Apple, and I think it will be a fun experience to be able to recompose our music to our liking through Garage Band. I heard that it was the first K-pop to participate in this session with a song called “It’s an honor.” We put a lot of effort into making sure you have a great experience using the app. I am happy and excited to be able to share a lot of the production process with Seventeen’s style.”
He continued, “Creativity is a core value that everyone should experience, so it was an opportunity I was so greedy for. It’s nice to be able to communicate with fans around the world in a new way,” he added.

When asked about the difference between this new song collaborated with Apple and previous works, he said, “After hearing about the collaboration, we just wanted to show ourselves. Garage Band is an easy-to-access app, as I used it a lot in the beginning. I hope that we can feel Seventeen’s music closely and that we can create creatively together fits the direction we are pursuing. Rather than expressing it differently from the existing music, I thought it would be better to show us as we are.”
Coups said, “Rather than we think we are targeting the US market, there are Carats who love us in North America, so we are making music. Although releasing an English single is far away now, I wanted to give you some consolation through music, and I wanted to tell you that I will be able to visit you in person when the situation improves. As it is an English single, I think I will be able to reach CARATs in North America and various regions.”
