Super teenager team NCT DREAM (SM Entertainment) has been appointed as the new global ambassador of the World Scout Foundation.
And as a global ambassador for the Foundation, NCT DREAM will be releasing a new single "Fireflies" on 15 July at 18:00 Korea Standard Time and we're excited to note that a share of the profits will be used to fund local Scout activities in underprivileged communities.
NCT DREAM and the World Scout Foundation’s collaboration project, "Fireflies" is a catchy up-tempo electro dance pop, which features guitar riffs and rhythmical synths. Written in English, the lyrics deliver a positive message of lighting up the world together, perfect to capture NCT DREAM’s sparkling energy.
As ambassador, NCT DREAM will also help inspire millions of Scouts worldwide who work every day to change their communities, combat climate change and work for peace, and they will start with a special performance at the 24th World Scout Jamboree on 23 July in Basecamp C at 15.00 local time.
According to John Geoghegan, Director of the World Scout Foundation, “His Majesty The King of Sweden, our Honorary Chairman, and the World Scout Foundation are pleased that NCT Dream has accepted this important role. Music is a platform that transcends culture and belief, and is a language that connects people into one. We believe that NCT DREAM and their music will deliver messages of peace, messages of hope and that they will be a role model for young people across the globe."
NCT Dream is widely loved for its bright and energetic music and performances and the band has proved its presence as global high-teen champions having been selected for 21 Under 21 2018: Music's Next Generation by Billboard USA and also as the only Asian artists featured in TIME's 25 Most Influential Teens of 2018.
