BTS in a teaser for "Lights"

The “lights” are ready to shine on BTS’ upcoming Japanese single.

Set to be released on July 3, Universal Music Japan shared a short teaser video of BTS’ upcoming song today (June 20) on YouTube. It will be released as a double single along with the Japanese version of April’s “Boy with Luv,” originally featuring Halsey.

The brief clip sees Jungkook in a movie theater, and other members appear around the venue. It cuts to a scene at a basketball court where six of the act’s seven members (sans Suga) appear laying down, after which the missing rapper is seen, seemingly looking at some lights. It then shifts to a scene of all seven on the same basketball court, before panning over individual members, and ends with Jungkook staring directly into the camera.

The song is teased throughout, and appears to hint to "Lights" being an ambient synth-pop track. It'll be BTS' first original Japanese single since 2017's "Crystal Snow." Since, they have released "Fake Love" and "Airplane Pt. 2" in Japan as singles.

Along with the teaser video, this week will also hear a brand new song from BTS' RM and Suga, set to be released on Friday (June 21) as part of the BTS World video game soundtrack. It follows prior releases from the other members in the group, which have featured Charli XCX and Zara Larsson. The original soundtrack album for the game is set to drop on June 28.
