The rumors began when a Korean media outlet reported that BTS will be releasing another album in the first half of 2017. Some fans didn’t believe it at first because the group has a hectic schedule for 2017. However, many also speculated on a comeback when BTS revealed an altered logo of the Wings album during the KBS Song Festival.
BTS’ agency, Big Hit Entertainment, verified that the rumors are true. A representative from the agency said that the group is still discussing about the album’s concept and songs. “But the boys are preparing for a comeback,” the representative said, “And their goal is on February.”
On January 23, Big Hit Entertainment announced that the BTS new album is called WINGS: You Never Walk Alone. There are no details regarding the tracks and music videos but the agency confirmed that the album will be out on February 13. Soompi reported that pre-orders for the album will start on January 25.
