BTS’ much anticipated Japanese language album Map of the Soul: 7 ~The Journey~ is out now. It is now available across digital platforms while the physical editions will be out on August 7 in the US.
Limited-Edition A and B versions of Map Of The Soul: 7 ~ The Journey ~ will include a video disc containing the music video of “Stay Gold” and its “making of” footage, plus other music videos. Limited-Edition C and D versions include a 56-page photo booklet featuring an array of new and unseen conceptual photos of BTS.
Prior to the new album’s release, the K-pop giants recently shared the official video for “Stay Gold”. In the new visual, the group have found themselves in a number of dark and desolate settings, before the chorus kicks in and they’re surrounded by sunshine, gold confetti and golden retrievers, as they dream of brighter days ahead.
“Stay Gold” also made a recent appearance in the new TV drama Spiral Labyrinth –DNA Science, where it serves as the J-drama’s theme song. When it first premiered, the “Stay Gold” video racked up over 16 million views on its very first day.
Along with “Stay Gold”, Map Of The Soul: 7 ~ The Journey ~ also includes Japanese language versions of the band’s biggest hits like “Boy With Luv”, “Dionysus”, “On” and “Fake Love”, as well as two other original Japanese-language offerings: “Your Eyes Tell” and “Lights”.
