BTA are now releasing a new album, which means they have a whole new concept for this. All of the members dyed their hair black, because the concept is supposed to be a dark one.
So far, they have released two teaser trailers, the first one was released on May 14th, with over 9 million views. The second trailer was more recent, May 16th, with over 8 million views already.
This concept is different than usual, Last Comeback was pure and soft, and this is more dark. They also released a video of the member Taehyung having a solo song called “Singularity.” This got a lot of attention because it was our first look into what’s to come.
They are also preparing for a tour around the world, like usual, the tickets are already sold out almost everywhere due to the smaller venues they picked. They limited some fans by only allowing people 16 and over into the pit. Soon, they will release more tour dates, but for now everything is sold out in America.
The new album, Love Yourself Tear, is basically a continuous part, with their last album being Love Yourself Her. There will be a third album since they both have 4 versions. Love Yourself Her, Covering Love, and Love Yourself Tear with Your. The next album is Covering Self.
Love Yourself Tear was released May 18th, and so was the music video of their title track, “Fake Love.” The idea of the music video is that all love is fake; that there’s no such thing as love. The music video is also linked to their older videos, meaning it has references for the fans to theorize about.
This album has 11 tracks:
1. “Intro: Singularity”
2. “Fake Love”
3. “전하지 못한 진심” (feat. Steve Aoki)
6. “Love Maze”
7. “Magic Shop”
8. “Airplane pt. 2”
10. “So What”
11. “Outro: Tear”
This list was released early, to get fans excited, along with member RM stating his favorite song. This time, there was no break in the album, usually there is a skit, or one track where it’s not a song.
Overall, I like the concept of this album; they are kind of going back to their older concepts in a way, but making it better. It has been awhile since we’ve seen them with dark hair like this, and fans are very happy about it.
