BTS will release a new album in June

On March 25, BTS announced BTS, The Best on their official Japanese fan club. The album will be released on June 16. However, fans will not have to wait that long for new music.

On April 2, the Korean band will release the song “Film out.” The song will also be included in the film SIGNAL The Movie Cold Case Investigation Unit, which is also set to be released on April 2.

A teaser for the music video for “Film out” was released on March 25. While it is not confirmed to be connected to BTS’ song “Fake Love,” the music video teaser for “Film out” features striking similarities to the music video for “Fake Love.”

What BTS fans think about the album announcement

After BTS announced the album on the official Japanese fan club, ARMY reacted on social media. Primarily, fans are already trying to guess when BTS’ next Korean comeback will be based on this upcoming Japanese release.

One fan speculated on Reddit, “I can see them maybe releasing a new single in early May as that would tie in with Billboard Awards and then new album in July?”

“… based on more recent history, I would guess we’re going to get a mixtape 1-2 months beforehand (aka April-May) and then the next album/release not long after THE BEST comes out…,” a fan wrote on Reddit.
