BTS will pre-release single in January

K-pop super band BTS will drop a new digital single this month ahead of its official release of a new album in February, according to the band’s management agency Thursday.

Big Hit Entertainment posted a “comeback map” on the official BTS website early Thursday morning, providing the timeline of the band’s release of “Map of the Soul: 7,” set for Feb. 21, the second edition of BTS’ ongoing “Map of the Soul” album series.

On Jan. 17, BTS will pre-release a single from the new album, along with an “art film” featuring a performance by a dance company, according to the timeline.

The band will then follow up with its second comeback trailer, “Eco,” on Feb. 3 before unveiling the new album’s concept photos every day from Feb. 10-13.

On Feb. 17, the full track list of the new album will become available, four days before the release of the full album on Feb. 21. A kinetic manifesto film featuring BTS is set to accompany the album.

The official video for the lead single of the new album will be made available a week after the album’s release, the timeline showed.

The timetable also includes events named “Connect, BTS” set to take place online and in five cities across the world ― London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Seoul and New York City ― without providing further information.

The second “Map of the Soul” album, a full-length record, is likely to carry on the first album’s Carl Jung-inspired theme of exploring the ego, as hinted by the titles of the two planned comeback trailers. (Yonhap)
