The multinational girl group <a href=”/music/twice”>TWICE</a> is set to release its first Japan album, called BDZ, on Sept. 12.
“BDZ” is an abbreviation of “bulldozer,” which symbolizes the members’ wish to be tough and live strong: “Making nothing of the big wall facing them and breaking it down like a bulldozer to keep moving forward.”
The album will include the title track; the group’s Japan debut single, “One More Time”; “Candy Pop” and its B-side track, “Brand New Girl”; “Wake Me Up”; and “I Want You Back” — a <a href=”/music/the-jacksons”>Jackson 5</a> cover that was recorded as the theme song for a Japanese rom-com movie — plus five new songs.
The title track, produced by longtime collaborator J.Y. Park, will be the album’s lead single. Pre-orders for BDZ began Friday (June 22).
