Korean pop band BTS have returned with a new, caps-happy album called MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 ~ THE JOURNEY ~:. The project is a Japanese language version of their most recent album MAP OF THE SOUL : 7, with two new songs, "Stay Gold" (which originally dropped in June) and "Your eyes tell." Listen below on Spotify via Pitchfork.
MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 was originally released in February, and hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart; it was the band's fourth album to top the chart in the United States. The group's subsequent tour was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. In May, BTS member SUGA surprise-released the mixtape D-2.
