"Butter", announced by Big Hit Music this afternoon (26 April), will be the K-pop stars' first new outing since their Japanese single "Film out" landed at the start of the month.

The new track will also mark the Korean groups' second English-language single, following "Dynamite" that dropped in August last year, which recently became the longest-charting song by a Korean act on the Billboard Hot 100, overtaking PSY's 2012 hit "Gangnam Style".

BTS have broken a lot of barriers over recent months, having become the first Korean pop act to be nominated at the Grammys, and the first Korean act to be nominated at this year's BRIT Awards.

On top of that, BTS recently partnered with McDonald's to announce their upcoming BTS Meal, which launches in nearly 50 countries next month.

Just last week, V of the K-pop group shared a clip of a new solo song.

BTS' new "Butter" single will be released 21 May via Big Hit Music.
