South Korean superstars BTS have announced their new album MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA, revealing it will arrive next month.

MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA is BTS' first album since the last year's Love Yourself: Answer, which was the final release of their Love Yourself trilogy. The release featured a track with Nicki Minaj, and after they featured on Steve Aoki's Neon Future III album with their first English-speaking single, "Waste It On Me".

News of their forthcoming follow-up arrives hot on the heels of their two sold-out shows at Wembley Stadium this June - NME reported that the first sold out in just 90 minutes, and Surrey Live reported over 200,000 fans tried to get their hands on tickets for the second show last week.

Earlier this month BTS released their first book, The Notes 1, which collated their music, videos, and creative narratives into content for their book.

BTS' new album MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA is yet to receive a tracklist, but will be released on 12 April. A pre-order will be available on Wednesday (13 March).
