BTS ‘Dynamite’ release date:
During a HoneyFM V Live, BTS announced that they would be releasing a new single ahead of their full album that will be released later this year. The single, which they didn’t reveal the title at that time, was set to be released on August 21, 2020.
“We have prepared a new single for ARMY, set for August 21. We are preparing an album for the second half of this year, but decided to first release a single because we wanted to reach our fans as soon as possible. Due to COVID-19, people around the world have been going through tough times and we wanted to share some positive energy with our fans,” the members teased during the live.
They also revealed that the song would be all in English saying, “The song is upbeat and sung in English, just like ‘MIC Drop’ and ‘Waste It On Me.’ We thought that the song sounded perfect as it is in English. We recorded the guide version and felt that the result was something totally new and fresh.”
