BTS release ‘Outro: Ego’ in comeback trailer for their upcoming new album

Do call it a comeback

BTS are back and they’ve released a new trailer for their upcoming new album, ‘MAP OF THE SOUL : 7’.

Titled ‘Outro: Ego’, the latest video from the South Korean boyband, which is referred to as a ‘comeback trailer’, sees j-hope at the forefront of an energetic pop song underlined by an Afrobeat-inspired rhythm.

The track also samples the beat from the intro of BTS’ debut album ‘2 COOL 4 SKOOL’ originally released back in June 2013.


Packed with visual effects, the trailer sees j-hope switch locations eventually arriving at a huge, colourful city at night where his image is projected onto one of the building’s big screens.

Last week, BTS debuted their new single ‘Black Swan’ live for the first time.

Appearing on James Corden’s The Late Late Show, the K-Pop giants delivered a suitably mysterious performance of the track, previously described by NME as a “haunting melancholy curveball”.

‘MAP OF THE SOUL : 7’ arrives February 21.


Meanwhile, BTS have announced a huge show at London’s Twickenham Stadium as part of their 2020 Map of the Soul world tour.

After Big Hit Entertainment previously teased that the K-Pop group would hit the road once more, it’s been confirmed that they will play London’s Twickenham Stadium between July 3-4. They’ll then continue the European leg of the tour with dates in Berlin and Barcelona.
