She first introduced the album, remarking that it was an album with weight featuring songs about topics like hope and herself in a wide variety of styles. About the title track, she discussed how the lyrics express the process of a small spark becoming a large fire and explained that is a passionate and provocative song that gave her courage.
Taeyeon then picked the song “Gravity” as her favorite track from the album, which she revealed in advance at her concerts.

Finally, Taeyeon shared behind stories about the process of making the album. She said, “Actually, I prepared for this album very quietly, so there aren’t any shocking stories. But through the long process of preparing, I developed a lot of affection for the album, and I feel like it’s more ‘me.'” She further humorously stated “I’m usually the type to share and explain things to my fans, but this time, I uploaded a photo of myself doing pilates with a fire emoticon, and it became a bit of a spoiler.”
Taeyeon’s album “Purpose” will be released on October 28 at 6 p.m. KST.
