[translation]
BTS, (set to) comeback April 12th with their album ‘MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA’

QUOTE
Group BTS will make a comeback on April 12 with the release of their new album ‘MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA.’
Today (March 12) BigHit Entertainment revealed on BTS’ official fancafe that “BTS will release ‘MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA’ on April 12. This is BTS’ first comeback in 8 months, since they released LOVE YOURSELF 結 ‘Answer’ in August. MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA’ will tell a new story that follows the story of the LOVE YOURSELF series that was told over the past 2 years and 6 months.

Last year, BTS became the first Korean singers to have 2 albums top the American ‘Billboard 200’ chart, one after another. Also, with ‘FAKE LOVE,’ the title track of LOVE YOURSELF 轉 ‘Tear,’ BTS became the first Korean group to rise to the Top 10 of the Billboard ‘Hot 100’ chart. Through their ‘LOVE YOURSELF’ tour, BTS, as the first Korean artists to do so, performed at the Citifield stadium in New York (in the USA). This coming May 4th, BTS will embark on their ‘SPEAK YOURSELF’ stadium tour in 8 areas, from Los Angeles to Chicago, stopping over in New Jersey, then Brazil’s S„o Paulo, London in the UK, Paris in France, Osaka and even Shizuoka in Japan.

There's an Ed Sheeran collab on it apparently, I'm intrigued.

Persona gives me very much 90ís hip-hop/R&B vibes, mixed with maybe a bit of Eminem. RM does a great job of leading us into the album.

Boy With Luv (A Poem For the Small Things) is obviously a stand-out. Itís really a cohesive mix of trending western-pop music and classic BTS styles. Halsey really adds to the song on the studio version, gives the chorus a little bit more texture.

Mikrokosmos was written by an English singer/songwriter if Iím not wrong. Funnily enough to me it sounds like modern Take That - but make it good. Iím loving it.

I was a tad apprehensive about Make It Right as I found out that it was co-written by Ed Sheeran, however I seem to like his writing style when I canít understand the lyrics! Itís honestly shaping up to be one of my faves right out the gate.

HOME screams Paradise Pt. II to me? And of course Paradise always reminded me of early Ariana Grande, so naturally I love it.

Jamais Vu is beautiful. Jin, J-Hope, and Jungkook do a really good job of carrying the song by themselves.

And then we close the album with Dionysus, which comes full circle really as RM, Suga and J-Hope rap over some very 90ís- reminiscent beat. Itís got some rocky undertones which Iíve always been a fan of the boys experimenting with. The vocal line bring a lot of attitude to the song as well, which means it kind of doesnít rest. Great closer.

Jiminís vocals are a huge stand out for me on this album, although I wish their was more Suga. Well done Bangtan, youíve done well once again. Maybe this could be their first UK Top 3 album? Maybe even number 1? Weíll see.

One of the songwriters is Ryan Lawrie, of X Factor 2016 fame heart.gif (and also one of my BJSC entries kink.gif)

I've heard Boy With Luv and Mikrokosmos and both songs are really quite good, gonna have to make this the first BTS release I check out in full I think!

I never would have guessed that BTS were the Phantom Thieves all along.

Curious to see how this does, they seem to just keep outdoing themselves.

Been hearing that Make It Right, sounds almost exactly the same as DJ Snake & Lauv - A Different Way (also written by Ed Sheeran) at 0:45 on both songs:

Gave this a listen as I stanned 'IDOL' and it's a pretty solid release, my early favourite is 'HOME'! I still can't get into 'Boy With Luv' at all though, boo.

It was always gonna happen eventually, but it just adds to BTS being the biggest group in the world right now!
