BTS Drops New Single “Black Swan”, Plus Performance Art Film

The first single for their new album is here!

BTS has dropped the first single for MAP OF THE SOUL: 7, “Black Swan”!

At 6 PM (KST) on January 17, BTS unveiled a beautiful art film as part of their scheduled comeback promotions. In it, performers from MN Dance Company dance to “Black Swan”, a pre-release single for BTS’s upcoming album.

The video begins with this heartwrenching quote by American dancer Martha Graham; “A dancer dies twice — once when they stop dancing, and this first death is the more painful.” The song, co-written by RM, “Black Swan” draws thematically on this quote.

MAP OF THE SOUL: 7 will be released on February 21.
