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”.
BTS has been sharing the album making process via their official YouTube channel ‘BANGTANTV’. 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.
“BE (Deluxe Edition)” 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-esque” music yet.
“BE (Deluxe Edition)”, a special album carefully crafted by BTS, will be available worldwide at midnight EST on November 20. The album will be printed in limited quantities for first-run print only stocks and pre-order periods may vary by retailer.
The new album follows their record-breaking single “Dynamite” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for two consecutive weeks a feat first achieved by a Korean act. Now the epic dance track has hit number 1 again on the chart. The single earned the band many other titles including most viewed YouTube video in 24 hours and biggest global Spotify debut in 2020.
BTS is nowhere close to stopping the show. They spoke once again at the United Nations in support of Unicef with a heartfelt message to young people struggling to cope during the COVID-19 pandemic according to UNICEF. From feeling alone to feeling hopeless, the K-Pop band shared details of their own personal challenges since the pandemic started more than nine months ago. “COVID-19 was beyond my imagination. Our world tour was canceled, all our plans went awry, and I became alone. I looked up but couldn’t see the stars at night,” said the band’s leader RM at the event focused on protecting future generations. “If our voices can give strength to people, then that’s what we want and that’s what we’ll keep on doing,” band member Jung Kook added.
The band will also appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for a weeklong special from Sept 28 to Oct 2, bringing comedy and amazing performances. BTS will also hold their online concert “BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E” on October 10 and 11.
