Soon, ARMYs will be able to add another BTS album to their collection. On June 14, the group announced they’re dropping a new physical CD. The release will feature BTS’ latest Billboard No. 1 single “Butter,” as well as one brand-new track fans haven’t heard before. The news arrived hours after the septet finished their second Muster performance, so you can imagine how excited fans were to hear there was another treat coming. To make sure you snag a copy, here’s everything you need to know about BTS’ “Butter” CD.
BTS teased their announcement at the end of their second Muster Sowoozoo concert. During the event, the guys did a skit involving a “breaking news” segment, during which Jin reported on a huge BTS logo that appeared in the sky. Jimin also did some weather updates talking about the scorching heat this summer. Finally, RM ended the segment by telling viewers more news was coming at midnight KST (aka 11 a.m. ET). Fans knew the teaser meant BTS was planning on dropping something big.
ARMYs initially thought it was going to be a full record, but as it turns out, BTS is releasing a single album that will feature only a few songs. One is “Butter,” which the group dropped on May 21, and another is totally new. Big Hit said the new single will make fans’ “heart beat to the rhythm of BTS’ positive energy,” teasing it will have an upbeat sound.
