Seventeen’s new album is called ‘Face the Sun’

Not much is known about Face the Sun so far, but in the album’s official announcement, Seventeen shared the cover art for the album which depicts different photos.
According to a press release:
“In contrast to the mellow, pastel-colored aesthetics the act recently presented through the pre-release track ‘Darl+ing,’ the stills of a staircase, ropes, the sun, a map and a structure laid across the teaser imply a more muted but multi-faceted shade to the stories to unfold.
Opening their new chapter with ‘Darl+ing’ earlier this month, the team of 13 creatives hinted that the upcoming album will tell stories they hold closer to their hearts than ever, imbued with thoughts and feelings they have kept to themselves until now.”
