Because BTS felt they needed to give their fans new music amid these challenging times, they dropped their first full-English song "Dynamite" in August. They made their debut in 2013 with the song "No More Dream".

Sunday, the group officially confirmed a title and release date for the new album. The band's next LP, which follows February's Map of the Soul: 7and July's Map of the Soul: 7 - The Journey, releases on digital and streaming formats November 20. "The latest story from BTS begins by declaring that "even in the face of this new normality, out life goes on" and imparts a message of healing to fans and to the world", said Big Hit.

For this album in particular, the septet were involved not only in the music making process, but also the concept, composition, design, music videos and more. Fans will discover throughout the album "the thoughts, emotions and deepest reflections of BTS" while experiencing an even richer musical spectrum, Big Hit emphasized.

South Korean K-pop sensation BTS is set to release new album BE (deluxe edition) on November 20 at 2 p.m. local time.
