It’s been five years since SEVENTEEN first debuted in Japan, and now they’re celebrating that anniversary with the physical release of Always Yours, a new “Best Of” compilation of their Japanese-language tracks. The album contains 27 songs on two discs, including two new Japanese original songs and Japanese versions of the band’s Korean hits.
Always Yours is available in four editions, three of which are limited edition versions including three distinct photo books. On top of those, there will also be a standard edition available. All versions will include a randomly selected photo card, with different variations offered in each edition. For U.S. fans, a Target exclusive version will also be available, featuring a jewel case, photo book, and a Target exclusive photo card.
The album’s single, the sparkly “Sara Sara,” was released in August ahead of the full digital release. SEVENTEEN originally made their Japanese debut in 2018 with the EP We Make You, featuring the title track “Call Call Call!” alongside Japanese versions of tracks including “Lean On Me” and “Highlight,” both of which now appear on Always Yours. Since their debut, they have shared a further two EPs and two singles in the language.
Earlier this month, group members Joshua, DK, and Dino teamed up with iconic boybanders New Kids On The Block for a new version Dirty Dancing,” remixed by Grammy-winning producer Dem Jointz.
SEVENTEEN will return to Japan in September, November, and December for a series of shows as part of the Follow tour. They will perform in Tokyo, Saitama, Aichi, Osaka, and Fukuoka, following a pair of kick-off dates in Seoul in July.
