BTS to Debut New Album ‘Map of the Soul: 7’ in February

Hannah Rogers | 09 January, 2020, 16:18

On Tuesday, the seven-piece K-pop juggernaut told its global fan community Weverse that it would drop a new album, Map of the Soul: 7, on February 21. Their first single will be released on January 17 along with an accompanying Art Film performed by MN Dance Company.

Pre-orders for BTS's new album will begin on Thursday (January 9)!

BTS had announced that new music would be coming soon at Variety's Hitmakers event in December, where they were honored as group of the year.

Along the way, BTS will play a handful of performances throughout some of the world's biggest cities, including Berlin, London and Buenos Aires. The album is the sequel to the act's Billboard 200 chart-topper EP Map of the Soul: Persona, released in April a year ago.

ARMYs, listen up: There's a new BTS album on the way.

BTS became the first band to reach this record since The Beatles, who earned that accolade with their 1995-96 Anthology trilogy.

Initially, the lads exploded onto the North American scene in 2018 following the release of their third studio album, Love Yourself: Tear. The announcement was made via the group's official interactive application, Weverse.

BTS is: Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook. Anticipation remains high as fans are eager to find out what Map of the Soul: "7, the second series of Map of the Soul, will offer", said BTS' agency, Big Hit Entertainment, in a statement.

Pre-orders for Map Of The Soul: 7 begin today.
