BTS – Proof album (download). It follows up their BE deluxe album released in 2020. The Korean music stars continue to thrill the world with their electric style of music and videos.
The K-pop stars shared more about the forthcoming release by releasing a “logo trailer” for the album, which revealed that the LP will be an anthology of their music catalogue thus far.
The video takes fans through their various eras through animated text that corresponded to their EPs, compilations and studio albums, which includes early career releases such as O!RUL8,2? and Skool Luv Affair, Love Yourself: Tear, Map of the Soul: 7, their most recent set, 2020’s Be. and more.
In addition to the video’s release, the K-pop group’s label, Big Hit Entertainment, issued a statement via the group’s Weverse page, telling fans that Proof serves two purposes — to celebrate BTS’ upcoming ninth anniversary as a group, and to provide ARMY with an expansive collection of their songs.
“The BTS anthology album that embodies the history of BTS will be released as they begin a new chapter as an artist that has been active for nine years to look back on their endeavors,” the statement read. “The anthology album Proof that consists of three CDs includes many different tracks — including three all-new tracks — that reflect the thoughts and ideas of the members on the past present and future of BTS.”
The three-disc set serves as a celebratory look back on the K-pop idols’ last near-decade as a band, with tracks personally selected and curated by RM, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook, V, Suga and J-Hope as a gift to ARMY and also features brand-new single “Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).”
While the first two discs are available on streaming and digital retailers, the majority of Proof‘s third disc is CD-only and filled with demos, deep cuts and solo a capella tracks like Jungkook’s “Still With You,” Jin’s “Epiphany” and group demos of “Boy In Luv,” “Boyz with Fun,” “Seesaw” and more. (The disc’s sole new track — closer “For Youth” — will still be accessible on streaming.)
