It includes a brand-new song, ‘Heartbeat’
The K-pop juggernauts have spent the past few weeks drip-feeding fans tracks from the album. The seven-member outfit kicked things off at the start of June with ‘Dream Glow’, their collaboration with Charli XCX, and followed up with the Zara Larsson-assisted track, ‘A Brand New Day’. Last Friday (June 21), BTS dropped the soundtrack’s third single ‘All Night’, featuring Juice WRLD.
Included on the album is a brand-new song, ‘Heartbeat’. Unlike the previous releases, this track features appearances from all seven members. It’s produced by longtime collaborator DJ Swivel – who worked on the group’s 2018 ‘Love Yourself: Answer’ LP – and co-written by one of BTS’ members, RM.
A music video for ‘Heartbeat’ also arrived alongside the soundtrack. The dreamy, fantasy-filled visual stitches together clips of each member on different adventures, with footage from their current world tour interspersed throughout. It closes with a touching message dedicated to their fans that reads: “See you there again, where we first met in 2012.” Watch the video here:
BTS are not done, though. They’re continuing their hot streak by teasing a fresh Japanese single, ‘Light’. The song, which was announced with a short clip on YouTube, is due out next Wednesday (July 3).
