While the BTS ARMY waits eagerly for the group's new single coming out next month, they can enjoy a little treat in the meantime thanks to Jungkook.

The 22-year-old uploaded a cover of Dan + Shay and Justin Bieber's romantic ballad, "10,000 Hours" to Soundcloud on Tuesday (July 28), and shared the link on Twitter with the caption, "10000 Hours Repeat."

The swoon-worthy rendition features Junkook's characteristically sweet vocals, making the song a natural fit for the South Korean star.

The cover follows BTS' announcement on the Korean broadcasting app V LIVE that they "have prepared a new single for ARMY, set for Aug. 21. We are preparing an album for the second half of this year, but decided to first release a single because we wanted to reach our fans as soon as possible."

They also revealed that the single will be in English. "The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like 'MIC Drop' and 'Waste It on Me,'" they revealed. "We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh."
