K-pop superstars BTS have announced a new English-language single will arrive August 21. The song’s title has not yet been revealed, but the track will mark the lead single from BTS’ next studio album.
“We have prepared a new single for ARMY, set for August 21,” BTS revealed on their community platform BTS Weverse, according to a press release. The group added: “We are preparing an album for the second half of this year, but decided to first release a single because we wanted to reach our fans as soon as possible. Due to COVID-19, people around the world have been going through tough times and we wanted to share some positive energy with our fans.”
The band added: “The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like ‘MIC Drop’ and ‘Waste It on Me.’ We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh. We also needed a breakthrough during these unforeseen times, so we worked on this new song. This is a new challenge for us as well. When we first heard and recorded the song, we were energized and our spirits were lifted up. We can’t wait to share this song with you all and enjoy it together.”
