On April 4th, 12AM JST, BTS released their third Japanese album, Face Yourself. The album features twelve tracks – seven of them being Japanese versions of their popular hits, as well as their original winter Japanese song, “Crystal Snow.” Four new, original Japanese songs are also featured – including an intro and outro, and two other songs titled, “Don’t Leave Me” and “Let Go.”
While no one knew what to expect of “Let Go,” the track “Don’t Leave Me” was teased on March 16th, making ARMYs around the globe anxious to hear it in its entirety. The excitement was so overwhelming that the unreleased song charted at #25 on Billboard’s Japan Hot 100. “Don’t Leave Me” also gained an immense amount of popularity when it was announced that it is being used as the theme song for the Japanese drama remake, ‘Signal.’
Face Yourself was announced for release on February 1st on the official BTS Japan Twitter. The release of the album comes right before BTS’ Japan schedule, where they will be holding handshake events for the promotion of Face Yourself, as well as a number of fanmeeting concerts held in Yokohama and Osaka, starting from April 18th to April 24th.
Face Yourself is available to stream on iTunes and Spotify, and the official audio can also be found BTS’ Japan official YouTube.
