According to the reports, BTS will release their newest Japanese single album “Bird/FAKE LOVE/Airplane pt.2” on November 2. Akimoto Yasushi will write the lyrics for the title track of the album, “Bird.”

In fact, the two parties first met through their mutual friend, the chief producer of BigHit Entertainment, Bang Si-Hyuk. Bang had apparently always expressed much interest in the worldview of Akimoto Yasushi and requested for his participation in the upcoming album.

Meanwhile, BTS released their repackaged album “Love Yourself: Tear” on August 24, and is currently on their world tour. Furthermore, the group managed to place their name on top of “Billboard 200” chart for the second time, and entered “Hot 100” chart with their track with Nicki Minaj. Thus, they became the first Korean group to enter Billboard charts with three different albums.

Moreover, the group once again proved their continuous popularity abroad by putting on a perfect show during the recent episode of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”
