On April 21, BTS' Suga will release D-DAY, his new album and third full-length project under his rap alias of Agust D. The tracklist emerged this weekend, and an unexpected featured artist pops up on "Snooze," the ninth song: Ryuichi Sakamoto, the Japanese composer who died on March 28. The posthumous appearance will be Sakamoto's first release since passing away from cancer at age 71. Sakamoto appears on the song with Woosung, a member of the Korean indie pop band The Rose.
The solo releases from BTS members come as the group continues its hiatus to allow for each individual to fulfill their government-mandated military service in South Korea. Jin reported for duty at Yeoncheon in December to being his 18-month stint. Last year, Pharrell and BTS' RM discussed an upcoming collaboration that will appear on Pharrell's album Phriends.
