K-pop superstars BTS’ highly anticipated new album will be dropping in November, which will contain the “most ‘BTS-esque’ music yet.’
Big Hit Entertainment announced that BTS’ “most special album” titled “BE (Deluxe Edition)” will be released Nov. 20 and fans can start pre-ordering it at 11 a.m. Korea Standard Time (10 a.m. Philippine time) today, Sept. 28.
"’BE (Deluxe Edition)’ contains the most ‘BTS-esque’ music yet. The latest story from BTS begins by declaring that ‘even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on’ and imparts a message of healing to fans and to the world,” according to Big Hit.
The upcoming album’s theme is aligned with BTS’ message when they spoke during the 75th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on Sept. 23 where they told the youth around the world that “life goes on, let’s live on” amid the ongoing epidemic.
Big Hit added that the new “album is made more special by direct involvement from BTS in not only the music, but from the concept and composition to design. You will discover throughout the album the thoughts, emotions and deepest reflections of BTS while experiencing an even richer musical spectrum.”
It described “BE” as “a most special album carefully crafted by BTS” and it “will be printed in limited quantities for first-run print only.”
The November release of “BE” will come nine months after BTS dropped the successful “Map of the Soul: 7” album on Feb. 21 this year.
“Map of the Soul: 7” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard 200, and has sold 4.3 million copies to date, according to Gaon Music Chart.
Last month, Guinness World Records declared it as the best-selling album in South Korea with 4.26 million copies sold as of June 2020, making “BTS the country’s best selling act of all time.”
