BTS’s new single to be out on Aug. 21

K-pop superstars will drop a new digital single in English on Aug. 21, the group said, calling the swap of BTS’s new single from their non-native tongue is “a new challenge.”

“We were initially set to drop an album later this year, but decided to release a single in advance for you,” BTS frontman RM told fans during BTS’ radio broadcast on Naver’s V Live, Sunday. “We wanted to invigorate you, who have been going through tough times due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”

His bandmate Jimin said: “I think the new song is energy-boosting. Just like many other people, all of our plans have practically fallen apart because of unforeseen circumstances, and this made us feel helpless for a while. So we looked for a way to create a breakthrough and came to work on this song, tackling a fresh challenge.”

The seven-piece act was set to embark on a world tour in April, but called off or postponed all the concerts following the virus outbreak. Instead, it played a paid online gig, “BANG BANG CON The Live,” on June 14, attracting more than 756,000 people in over 107 countries.

It is uncertain for now whether the new single will be included in BTS’s next album, according to Jin.

Although further details about the track ― such as its title and genre ― are being kept under wraps, the members hinted that it is “very uplifting.”

Big Hit Entertainment, BTS’ agency, confirmed the release and said on the group’s fan community Weverse that it would provide more details soon.

BTS, comprising RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook, debuted in 2013 with the album “2 COOL 4 SKOOL.” The septet previously released English-language tracks such as “MIC Drop” (2017) and “Waste It On Me” (2018). Its latest album “Map of the Soul: 7” hit shelves in February, with the first single off the album debuting at No.4 on the Billboard 100 singles chart.
