BTS released the comeback trailer for their upcoming album Map of the Soul: 7 on Jan. 9th.
It doesn’t officially feel like its comeback time until BTS drops a trailer, which features a new song that will serve as the intro for the album.
“Interlude: Shadow” is performed by Suga and is actually a rework of “INTRO : O!RUL8,2?” — which was originally performed by RM and was included on the group’s 2013 EP O!RUL8,2? (short for ‘Oh! Are you late too?’). Suga’s version has a more modern, trap-infused production with new lyrics that paints his struggles with fame and the sacrifices he’s made in stark detail.
Map of the Soul: 7 will be released on February 21 at 4:00am EST (6:00pm KST). The first single off MOTS:7 (which is not “Shadow”) is set to drop January 17.
