Korean boy band BTS took to Twitter today to announce their next project, Love Yourself: Tear. The new album is set to be released on May 18.
The sequel to last year’s Love Yourself: Her, Tear is the second in the group’s Love Yourself series and follows the release of the record-breaking Japanese Face Yourself album. Unlike Her, Tear will be a full-length album. It will be the group’s third LP, following 2014's Dark & Wild and 2016's Wings.
With each of BTS’ subsequent releases since Love Yourself: Her, including J-Hope’s solo Hope World and their Japanese album, resonating well on the Billboard 200, Love Yourself: Tear is one of the most-highly anticipated albums this year.
