While BTS has been making history with “Dynamite”, becoming the first K-pop group to top the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks in a row and breaking YouTube records by scoring the most views in 24 hours with 100 million views, they’ve also been busy recording a new album.
The K-pop group has announced that their latest album BE (Deluxe Edition) will be released on November 20.
BTS has been sharing moments leading up to the album’s creation on their YouTube channel BangtanTV.
“The new album imparts a message of healing to the world by declaring, ‘Even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on,’” reads the official announcement.
“For this album in particular, the septet took a step further and was involved not only in the music making process, but also in the overall production: concept, composition, design, etc… [it] reflects the thoughts, emotions and deepest ruminations of BTS while working on the album. This new project offers an even richer musical spectrum experience as well as the most ‘BTS-ish’ music yet,” the statement adds.
This week, BTS is scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon from September 28 to October 2. They’ll also be holding their online concert BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E on October 10 and 11.
