Hoping to win this year's League of Legends World Championships, 'Runner' is said to be an intense track that reflects T1's determination and commitment.
The track comes as the latest in the team's collaboration with Korean music acts. Earlier last year, T1 guest-starred on BTS' variety show Run BTS where they played Gang Beasts and Fall Guys.
Baekhyun has also recently crossed over into the world of gaming, having recently collaborated with esports organisation Gen.G Esports to play PUBG on YouTube Live. In the past, the K-pop star has expressed his love for League of Legends, even previously the game's theme song 'Legend Never Die' as the song that best represents his life.
'Runner' and its accompanying music video is slated for release on 26 January via all digital platforms and T1's official YouTube channel.
