Apr 18,2018

K-pop sensation BTS will make a comeback next month when it releases its third full-length album, its agency announced on Tuesday.

“Love Yourself: Tear,” the follow-up to the band’s smash hit album “Love Yourself: Her” which was released in September, will drop on May 18, according to Big Hit Entertainment.

The group released a cinematic teaser video of the upcoming new album earlier this month. Big Hit hinted that the new record will explore themes relating to the pains and sorrows of separation.

BTS enjoyed massive success last year, with its previous EP, “Love Yourself: Her,” selling over 1.49 million copies since its release in September. The group was included in Forbes magazine’s “30 Under 30 Asia” list in the entertainment and sports category for 2018.
