AceShowbiz - BTS (a.k.a. Bangtan Boys) surprised their fans by releasing their new song "Euphoria" in a nine-minute video teasing their new album. Titled "Euphoria: Theme of Love Yourself Wonder", the clip hints at the theme of the follow-up to 2017's "Love Yourself: Her". The video suggests that the upcoming album will be titled "Love Yourself: Wonder".
The cinematic visuals opens with disturbing scenes that see blood, fires, fights, drowning and hospital patients, set to classic song "Clair De Lune". The new track itself is only revealed three minutes into the video.
The members, V, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga, Jin, RM (previously known as Rap Monster) and J-Hope, are later seen in happier state. They are laughing, running, jumping and goofing around with one another, perfectly reflecting the song's title and lyrics.
"Euphoria/ Euphoria/ Take my hands now/ You are the cause of my euphoria," they sing in the intro. "Euphoria/ Euphoria/ Close the door now/ When I'm with you I'm in utopia."
The end credits reveal that the song was produced by Jordan "DJ Swivel" Young with Candace Nicole Sosa, Melanie Joy Fontana, BigHit Entertainment founder "Hitman" Bang Si Hyuk, Supreme Boi, Adora and RM.
The new album, which is presumably titled "Love Yourself: Wonder", has no release date as of now. The boys just released their Japanese album "Face Yourself" on April 4 which features 12 tracks, including 4 new songs.
Jungkook and friends have also greeted their fans on YouTube docuseries "BTS: Burn the Stage" which was launched on March 28. The seven-piece group recently joined Hollywood and international stars in Stevie Wonder's memorial project honoring the late Martin Luther King Jr. They appeared in a video with the likes of Barack Obama and Harry Styles to mark the launch of "Dream Lives On" project. In the video, the stars and public figures talk about their own dreams for future. They say their dreams is "that people love themselves."
The group's agency BigHit Entertainment said in a statement following the video release on April 4, "Stevie Wonder himself personally sent a request to BTS that they participate, and because BTS agreed with the meaning behind the project, they ended up participating."
