Limited edition A includes a bonus DVD with the music video for "Calling" while limited edition B includes a bonus DVD with the music video for "Breathless".

The music for "Calling" was written by Andreas Johansson and Youwhich. The lyrics were written by s-Tnk and Eltvo. A writer from CDJournal described "Calling" as a "rocking number". The writer also described as a kouha (tough) song. The song features edgy synths that accent a heavy band sound.[4] "Breathless" was composed by Takuya Harada, Christofer Erixon, and Joakim Björnberg, with lyrics by Hydrant. CDJournal described it as a cool dance tune that also has hard elements.[4]
