BTS – comprising RM, Jimin, Jin, Suga, Jungkook, V and J-Hope – surprised fans with the song rendition during the special MTV Unplugged session, saying that the track “gave us comfort, so we wanted to prepare this cover to comfort you as well.” The septet appeared on the iconic MTV Unplugged progamme on Tuesday (February 23).

Apart from ‘Fix You’, the Grammy-nominated boyband also performed stripped-down versions of ‘Telepathy’, ‘Blue & Grey’, ‘Life Goes On’ and their Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping smash hit ‘Dynamite’. All four songs appear on their latest album ‘BE (Deluxe Edition)’, which was released last November.

The album was received well by critics upon release and made it onto a number of Best Of 2020 lists, including NME‘s very own. In a four-star review, NME’s Rhian Daly called the record a “sensitive, stunning document of pandemic life”.
