RM revealed the group would release a new album

On April 17, RM held a YouTube Live to check in with fans, and he told fans that the members would start doing this weekly. During his livestream, RM revealed that BTS planned to make a new album.

“To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be talking so casually like this but— As many of you probably expected, our album is going to come out. We’ve decided to prepare for a new album, so we’ve started preparations… We’ve kicked it off,” RM said.

He continued, “We’ll be sharing the process of preparing and stuff, which is a first. I’m a bit torn about how much we should show— But we’ll be trying to show you some of the processes that we go through together, from now on… The album will come out, but since we only just kicked off, we don’t know what songs we will sing, what the title song will be, what kind of music we’ll talk about. None of that has been decided in detail yet since we only just started talking about it.”

Suga shared more details about BTS’s new album

After RM’s YouTube Live, Suga shared even more details about the upcoming album. The livestream lasted for nearly an hour, and for the first half hour Suga barely spoke and focused on painting a large canvas.

“I get why people enjoy painting,” he said. “It’s really calming.”

Like RM, Suga shared details about BTS’s album, and he gave more insight to the group’s creative process.

“Yes, well, right now we’re starting to work again on the album. We started by deciding on the leaders. General manager… Visual general manager? Music general manager? We split it up this way…,” Suga said. “Today we discussed among ourselves and made decisions. Related videos will be out soon, so stay tuned!”

The BTS members are known for writing and producing their own music. Based on what Suga told fans during the YouTube Live, the members of BTS are even more involved in the creative process for the album than their past albums. ARMY can also expect video teasers for the album to drop soon.
