BTS Reveal Their New Album Will Be Out 'Real Soon' & a 'Paying Off to Their Fans': Watch

BTS caught up with Billboard’s Keith Caulfield on the red carpet at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 10), chatting about their excitement over being at the event, what fans can expect from their new album, and who they are most looking forward to meeting.

BTS, in attendance at the Grammys for the very first time, reveal that being at the awards show is a huge honor. “We’re living the dream,” RM tells Billboard. “I’d like to say thanks to all the ARMY, they give us force.”

Asked if they can confirm whether or not the rumors are true that their next record will be released in early May, RM replies with a smile that they are working “very hard” on it, and that it will be out “real soon.”

The group is also asked if this record will have a theme attached to it, to which RM responds that he can’t say, but that it will be about giving back to their their fans. “The concept is paying off,” he says. “So I just hope that they love it, and they listen to it, and they like it. That’s all!”

Also posed with the question of whether or not the album will be a trilogy, RM says ““Um…that’s a secret! Come on, that’s an important part! Come on, Billboard, you know what we do!”

BTS also discuss which artists they are eager to meet at the Grammys, naming Lady Gaga, Camila Cabello, and Travis Scott.

Finally, the guys are asked how this past year of chart success has impacted their lives. “I’ve seen so many good words to us,” states RM. “But I think the most important thing is that we keep ourselves, we just stay in our lane and do what we love to do, so it’s still great and still feels amazing, but we’re just trying to keep it chill…we’re trying to enjoy the ride. It’s like a rollercoaster and we’re up, let’s try to enjoy it…but not too much.”
