A new BTS album 'Be' is coming in November. Let the pre-order countdown begin

K-pop stars BTS will drop their fifth full-length album, “BE (Deluxe Edition),” on Nov. 20, the band’s label, Big Hit Entertainment, said on Sunday.

BTS contributed to the album’s concept, composition and design so it “contains the most ‘BTS’ music,” read the announcement. “It is an album that conveys consolation to fans and the world, starting with the story of BTS. ... I hope you discover the traces of BTS’ thoughts, emotions and worries throughout the album while also experiencing a richer musical spectrum.”

The album will have a limited first-run of print copies, and pre-orders will be available 11 a.m. Monday Korean Standard Time, which is 7 p.m. Sunday in the Pacific time zone.

Last week the band appeared on the virtual version of NPR’s Tiny Desk video series. BTS performed its latest hit single, “Dynamite,” which recently broke records for views within its first 24 hours on YouTube, surpassing 100 million.

This week the band is scheduled to appear on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” for a weeklong special. On Oct. 10 and 11 the band will hold a virtual concert, “BTS Map of the Soul ON:E.”
