BTS To Collaborate With AKB48’s Producer For New Japanese Single
News sources claim BTS will be dropping a brand new Japanese single album in November. The album is said to contain the Japanese versions of “FAKE LOVE”, “Airplane pt.2”, and a brand new title track titled “Bird”.
To make the album even more special, Japanese producer Yasushi Akimoto has written the lyrics for “Bird”. He’s most famous for his work as the ‘global producer’ of AKB48.
“AKB48’s global producer, Yasushi Akimoto, wrote the lyrics for BTS’s new single title track, ‘Bird’.”

The collaboration with Yasushi Akimoto came to be thanks to Bang Si Hyuk‘s connection with the producer. They’ve been in contact for a while and finally decided to work together on “Bird”.
The new album is set to drop on November 7. Not much else has been released about the details of their new album, but ARMYs are more than ready for the new hit!

JP track name: Bird
ARMY: A continuation of themes from Face Yourself, Bird is about breaking free of societal/ego constraints, hearkening back to Hesse "the bird fights its way out of the egg" and evoking the symbolism of both rebirth and flying high with ARMY wings.@BTS_twt
