The k-pop giants' BE (Deluxe Edition) album will follow on from February's MAP OF THE SOUL : 7 LP.

BTS announced their second album of the year on socials yesterday (27 September). The group's label Big Hit Entertainment also shared a statement on the album via their own Weverse app, which revealed their upcoming album "contains the most "BTS-esque" music yet."

The label's statement added, "The latest story from BTS begins by declaring that "even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on" and imparts a message of healing to fans and to the world."

Each member of BTS had "direct involvement" in the creation of the album.

News of BE (Deluxe Edition) comes after the group released their "Dynamite" and "Ioniq: I’m On It" singles last month.

The group will also begin their BTS Week on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon from today (28 September), which will see the group perform on the show for five consecutive nights.

BTS' BE (Deluxe Edition) album will arrive via Big Hit Entertainment on 20 November. Pre-orders are due to go live from today (28 September).
