South Korean boy band BTS is here to take away our summertime sadness with Proof, the new album they're dropping on June 10 and just when we thought we couldn't be more excited, they've revealed more information on their upcoming anthology album. They released track lists, the scheduled dates and cover art for their lead single, littering the past few days with little treats for their fandom, the BTS ARMY.
Their new album will celebrate the boyband's ninth year together. “The BTS anthology album that embodies the history of BTS will be released as they begin a new chapter as an artist that has been active for nine years to look back on their endeavours,” a statement from the group’s label, Big Hit Entertainment, read. “The anthology album Proof that consists of three CDs includes many different tracks — including three all-new tracks — that reflect the thoughts and ideas of the members on the past present and future of BTS.”
On May 9 and May 8, Big Hit Music posted track lists of songs that are set to be included on the first and second CDs of the three-CD release.
'Yet to Come', the lead single for Proof is included in CD one and will be released on June 8. Its official music video will arrive on June 10 with the rest of the album which is a collection of the Grammy-nominated group’s most notable songs from their career and three new singles. Big Hit Entertainment also revealed the cover art for the lead single.
On May 7, the music label dropped a promotion schedule for the album that included dates for the track list and music video teaser. They also left a few spots empty in the wheel of dates, the centre dated June 13 with red question marks for that element of mystery that activates the investigator inside us.
On May 4, the boyband posted the trailer for the Proof logo in which the video takes fans through the musical catalogue of their various eras which includes early career releases such as O!RUL8,2?, Skool Luv Affair, Love Yourself: Tear, Map of the Soul: 7 and their most recent release, 2020’s Be.
On April 16, the boyband took to Twitter and shared the announcement about their new album release. In the 50-second clip, the video revealed that the upcoming album will hit the market on June 10 this year. The video featured V, Jungkook, Jimin, Jin, Suga, RM, and J-Hope saying "We are bulletproof" together.
