Watch: BTS Returns To “The Today Show” To Talk “Dynamite,” Donating, New Album, And More
When asked why they decided to put out their first all-English track, RM said, “When we first listened to the demo, we just loved it as it is, so we thought, ‘Why not do it this way?’ So we just kept the demo and recorded it, and it became a whole new challenge for us too.”
“I hope fans will draw a lot of energy from this new song,” said V.
The group last appeared on the “The Today Show” in February after the release of their album “Map of the Soul: 7,” when a massive crowd of fans showed up to see them be interviewed.
BTS was asked what they think when they look back on that time, and Suga said, “We miss it – we had fun. And we would like to go back and do it again soon.”
“The Today Show” talked about how during the COVID-19 pandemic, the guys have had to postpone their world tour and are social distancing while live streaming their activities for fans. They’re also working on a new album.
“I think this was a healing process for us too,” said Jimin. “But working on the album made us realize that there’s something we can do.”
RM said, “It’s going to be new and fresh, and it’s going to be a little different from the single ‘Dynamite’ as well. That’s all I can say!”
“We just want the world to be a better place,” said Suga. “We don’t regard ourselves as doing great deeds. But we do feel thankful that many people relate to our actions and in turn, take action from their end.”
The group also talked about how much they want to see their fans again, with RM saying, “We miss them so much.”
