BTS first teased news of the album at the end of their final Permission To Dance On Stage LA residency show on Saturday (16 April) with a video that featured the words: "We are bulletproof" and a date of 10 June.

Big Hit Music has since confirmed news of BTS' new album on socials with the same video teaser. Soompi reports that Big Hit also shared a statement on Weverse that reads: "Hello. This is Big Hit Music. BTS will be back with another new album on June 10, 2022. Details on the new album will be provided in a separate notice at a later date. We look forward to your love and support for BTS’s new album. Thank you."

Although BTS' Jungkook and Suga released their 7Fates: CHAKHO song "Stay Alive" in February, BTS haven't released new music as a group since featuring on Coldplay's "My Universe" in September last year.

The group's upcoming album will follow 2020's BE.

BTS are yet to share details of their new album that's out on 10 June.
