Featuring 12 tracks, the album features both new and old music from the record-breaking act. Along with Japanese versions of older tracks already released in Korean and Japanese, including “Blood, Sweat & Tears,” “DNA” and “Mic Drop,” Face Yourself contains four new tracks: “Intro: Ringwanderung,” “Don’t Leave Me,” “Let Go” and “Outro: Crack.”
Following the ‘X Yourself’ theme of last year’s Love Yourself: Her, Face Yourself begins off with an homage to that album: “Ringwanderung” is a house remix of the songs originally released on Her, which recently marked its 25th week on the Billboard 200 chart, while “Crack” end things off with an ambient, old-school-inspired hip-hop melody. Meanwhile, the other two new full-length tracks present sentimentality in the form of the sleek orchestral EDM of “Don’t Leave Me” and the romantic electropop & alt R&B ballad “Let Go.”
Along with being released as a physical album, Face Yourself was released simultaneously internationally digitally, a rarity for music coming from the restricted Japanese music market. It’s now available stateside through Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music, and Google Play.
