BTS fans are getting not one, but two albums this year. The K-pop boyband has just announced a new album called BE coming on Nov 20.

The announcement, made by the group’s agency Big Hit Entertainment, comes after the band has enjoyed phenomenal success in the last few weeks by topping the US Billboard singles chart with the first English hit, Dynamite.

According to Variety, Big Hit released a statement that read: “The new album imparts a message of healing to the world by declaring, ‘Even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on.’”

Variety further reported that the seven members of the band were involved “not only in the music making process, but also in the overall production: concept, composition, design” of the album.

You can pre-order the new album starting on Monday (Sep 28).

The band’s first album of 2020 – Map Of The Soul: 7 – was released in February.

This week, BTS will be on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon for all five nights, where RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook will be performing a different track each night. They will also be guests on the show on the third night.
