K-pop superstars BTS have dropped a brand new song and accompanying video, “Film Out,” from their upcoming Japanese-language album BTS, The Best, which arrives on June 16.
The planned two-disc compilation will also include their English-language smash, “Dynamite,” along with all of the Japanese-language songs they’ve released since 2017.
The band first announced the record on March 26th via their official Japanese fan club, but they’ve been teasing the official release of “Film Out” since February. The track was written in collaboration with Iyori Shimizu of the Japanese band Black Number, and it was first previewed as the ending theme song in the 2021 Japanese film, SIGNAL the Movie Cold Case Investigation Unit, which hits theatres tomorrow.
Previously, BTS’s “Don’t Leave Me” was featured as the theme of the Japanese TV series Signal, a remake of the popular K-drama series by the same name, starring Kentaro Sakaguchi as a police officer who communicates with another officer from the past to crack unsolved cases.
In other news, BTS snagged their first-ever nomination at the 2021 BRIT Awards. For the upcoming awards, BTS is in the running for Best International Group, an award that was reinstated this year after a one-year break.
BTS, who are now the first South Korean artist or group to ever score a BRIT Awards nomination, will be going up against fellow nominees Foo Fighters, Run the Jewels, HAIM, and Fontaines DC.
