BTS already gave us a couple of pretty amazing tracks this year, and the group has another one on the way. Members of the K-pop band decided to release a new single next month because they want to “share some positive energy” with their fans.

BTS shared the amazing news via the Korean broadcasting app V LIVE. They said that they were energized and their spirits were lifted up while recording this song, and they’re hoping it will do the same for their fans.

“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,” BTS revealed.

The new single will be released on August 21st, and an album should be released in the second half of this year. This announcement comes shortly after the band released its latest album Map of the Soul: 7 – The Journey, which features Japanese versions of some of their biggest hits.
