K-pop titans BTS have announced the release of their new album BE (Deluxe Edition).

This marks the second album the group is releasing in 2020 and is slated to drop on November 20. The album will be printed in limited quantities for first-run print only— with pre-orders times said to vary by retailer.

“The new album imparts a message of healing to the world by declaring, ‘Even in the face of this new normality, our life goes on,’” reads the press release, which says the album “reflects the thoughts, emotions and deepest ruminations of BTS while working on the album.

BTS recently premiered their new single "Dynamite" as part of Fortnite’s virtual concert series on September 25. The song has since gone on to break several records, notably seeing BTS become the first international and Korean band to debut at Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song represents their first English-language single, and according to Spotify, it sparked a 300% increase in the number of people listening to their music for the first time. The track also broke YouTube records by scoring the most views in 24 hours in the platform’s history, officially topping 100 million in that time frame.

BTS seems to be everywhere these days and that includes The Tonight Show where they will star alongside Jimmy Fallon for a weeklong special from Sept  28 to Oct 2.

BTS will also hold their online concert BTS MAP OF THE SOUL ON:E on October 10 and 11.

And if you missed it, we highly recommend watching this recent performance in which the K-pop superstars settled in as the guests for NPR's in-house live performance series.
