Last month, K-pop stars BTS announced that they would be releasing a new English single later this month, their first new outing since June's Japanese single "Stay Gold".

Yesterday (2 August), the group confirmed the title of their upcoming track - "Dynamite".

When announcing the single, BTS wrote, "The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like "MIC Drop" and "Waste It On Me". We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh."

BTS added, "We also needed a breakthrough during these unforeseen times, so we worked on this new song. This is a new challenge for us as well. When we first heard and recorded the song, we were energised and our spirits were lifted up. We can’t wait to share this song with you all and enjoy it together."

The band have been busy this year. Last month they released their Japanese album Map Of The Soul: 7 ~ The Journey ~, which followed on from February's MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 LP. Suga of the group also released his D-2 mixtape as Agust D in May, and Junkook released new solo track "Still With You" in June.

BTS' "Dynamite" single will arrive via Big Hit Entertainment on 21 August.
