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.

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!
