Over the weekend, BTS fans were treated to a number of new songs via their album BE. One of those songs was Blue & Grey. The track featured vocals of all the members - RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook - and had producer and artist NIve work with Taehyung on the track. The song's lyrics revolve around the theme of depression. Recalling his work with the South Korean singer, NIve revealed that he and TaeTae came together with the hope to pen a great song together. Eventually, they found their way to Blue & Grey. 

According to Koreaboo, NIve revealed that the Winter Bear crooner reached out to him with the theme of "gloominess" in his mind. "The gloominess V was suggesting was not just about being gloomy and depressed but rather about finding hope and comfort even through the gloom," the artist said. With the concept in place, the duo discussed attempted to explore ways in which the track could be more abstract. They navigated through colours that could express the idea of the song. He added that they hand the colour combination "black and white" and "blue and grey" in mind. The monochrome colour felt like a common expression, thus they chose blue and grey. 

Once the theme was in place, NIve recalled the biggest challenged faced during the song making processes was to describe it using sound. NIve was particular about the first instrument sound that would feature in the first part of the song. The artist said he wanted to pick an instrument which would portray the overall mood of the song. “I wanted to use something with a clear but raw sound, so I decided it would be best to start with plug-in/virtual instruments and play them with a keyboard," he said. 

The singer also spoke about the usage of the sound of a heartbeat in the song for it feels comforting. "It’s like you know it’s there, but it doesn’t stick out in the song. With its presence, I’d like to think that it helps the song feel much more comforting," he said.

I thought the song was great. I hope that people realize it doesn't matter how old you are, what you ethnicity is or even your health a person can still suffer from depression. As popular as BTS is and as happy as we all are that they exist we should also realize their not gods...the humans that endure another. They have a hard time just walking in an airport, eating at a restaurant and just going shopping in a store. It's crazy and can be extremely depressing its as if their rights have been taken from them. So please show them respect and give them some space to expand themselves.

It is now my favourite song, I get goose bumps as I listen to it and I have listened to it over 30x now. It perfectly describes how I feel and brings me comfort that my favourite group in the world has had the same feelings. Their music and their being have made a huge impact in my life. Thank you BTS !

I’m not at all surprised with the beauty and depth of Blue and Grey. V has shown his artistry and unique voice with songs like Winter Bear. I think he’s sometimes underestimated because he’s visually stunning and such a charismatic performer but he is truly the real deal and yet a chameleon.

Blue & Grey is my lullaby. Top track for me in the entire album. Poignant and hauntingly beautiful. V did great and the members made it so so beautiful, Jin's voice in this track makes me cry, the emotions he evokes in it. V, of course, is a master.
