BTS Sign New Record Deal With Def Jam Records in Japan, Single Dropping in May
That BTS reign just won't let up.
While the boys are busy making their way around stateside for the North American leg of their 2017 BTS Live Trilogy Episode III: The Wings Tour, the massively popular troupe's just inked a new record deal in Japan with Def Jam Records, making them labelmates with the likes of Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Kanye West.
"We are thrilled to welcome BTS to the Def Jam family. It’s remarkable how they have established a strong career in such a short period of time, and we wish them more successes in the years to come," the label announced in a statement today (Mar. 24).
Not only that, but the group will release new (well, old but new) material later this spring with the Japanese version of their hit "Blood, Sweat & Tears" on May 10, according to Universal.
As with all Japanese pop releases, the single comes bundled in various CD and DVD options: the CD version will include Japanese versions of You Never Walk Alone smashes "Spring Day" and "Not Today," while the DVD versions will include music videos for "Blood, Sweat & Tears" and "Not Today," plus making-of features for the music video and jacket photos.
The Wings Tour will run through Japan beginning on May 30 in Osaka, coinciding perfectly with their May release. You ready, Japanese A.R.M.Y?
