The band rocks a ton of Gucci in their latest set of teaser photos.

As BTS' upcoming Map of the Soul: Persona album looms closer, the Korean septet have released more teaser photos to keep the excitement high.

Revealed at midnight local time in Seoul on Wednesday, the group's Korean label Big Hit Entertainment shared two new photo sets with two different concepts. Like the versions previously revealed, each series includes one group shot and photos of the individual members. "Concept Photo version 3" sees the guys in a brightly lit bedroom, draped in chic pajama-like shirts paired with cozy shoes and slippers, while "Concept Photo version 4" continues the comfy theme as the guys wear brightly colored sweaters, eating grapes and strawberries in their solo shots. Even with the laidback nature of the photos, the guys make sure to rock multiple items from Gucci -- one of their favorite and go-to designers -- donning sweaters, shoes, jackets and accessories from the luxury brand.

The new photos come just two days after Persona's initial batch of concept photos delivered more than 100 new pics of RM, V, Suga, Jung Kook, Jin, J-Hope and Jimin. The four different photo sets relate to the look of the four different versions of the Persona physical albums that fans can purchase.

Map of the Soul: Persona is set to be released on April 12, marking the group's first new music of 2019 following two Billboard 200-topping albums last year with Love Yourself: Tear and Love Yourself: Answer. On March 27, BTS leader RM shared the first taste of the new music by starring in the "comeback trailer" to introductory song "Persona," expected to be included in the forthcoming LP.
