BTS reached the latest stage of their impressive "comeback map" overnight with the release of new song "Black Swan." The first song to be taken from new album MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 is accompanied by a video, described by the K-pop idols as an "art film," featuring a performance by Slovenia's MN Dance Company.
MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 is due for release on February 21. It is the follow-up to 2019 album MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA and the BTS World: Original Soundtrack.
The new album will come after BTS's "extended period of rest," which turned out to be about one month. Recent BTS performances include New York's Times Square for Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, and somewhat more controversially, Saudi Arabia.
