BTS has recently revealed their tracklists for their new anthology album “Proof.”
In April, BTS successfully wrapped up their ‘BTS PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE – LAS VEGAS’ concert, and at the end of the concert, they made an announcement about their new album via video. On 4th May, the popular boy group released a Logo trailer for their anthology album “Proof” which is comprised of 3 CDs.
On 8th May, BTS revealed the 1st tracklist for their new album which contains lead tracks from their previous albums starting from ‘I Need U’ to ‘No More Dream’ to ‘DNA’ to ‘ON’. Their SoundCloud track ‘Born Singer’ is also included in the album. CD 1 consists of 19 tracks and ends with the lead single “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).”
“(The Most Beautiful Moment)” suggests that “Yet to Come” will return to The Most Beautiful Moment in Life album that began one of BTS’s iconic HYYH era.
On 9th May, the group revealed that CD 2, includes fan favorites, such as “Singularity,” “Her,” and “Filter.” Also, this CD comes with PROOF‘s second new song, “Run BTS,” as CD2’s first track.
On 10th May they released the tracklist of their 3rd CD which includes 14 tracks. Some tracks are of ARMY’s wish as well as a new song, “For Youth.”
Since BTS’s RM, J-Hope, and Suga were involved in making “For Youth,” this new song could very well be a subunit track for the rap line. In addition to “For Youth,” Track 02 (“Ambiguous Relationship”) and Track 04 (“Quotation Marks”) also appear to be new songs. Some are seen to be demo versions of previously released tracks such as “JUMP,” “I Need U,” “DNA” and “Young Forever.
As a special gift for fans, CD3 is only available on CD except for “For Youth” which is also available on digital.
This anthology is a new concept to mark the new era as per the BigHit Music’s announcement which they made while revealing the pre-order date. They said:
After ceaselessly sprinting forward since 2013, BTS is celebrating its 9th anniversary this coming June. It is all thanks to ARMY who have sent us your unwavering love and support.
The BTS anthology album that embodies the history of BTS will be released as they begin a new chapter as an artist that has been active for nine years to look back on their past endeavors. The anthology album “Proof” which consists of three CDs includes many different tracks – including three all-new tracks – that reflect the thoughts and ideas of the members on the past, present, and future of BTS.
We hope that you look forward to BTS’ anthology album Proof, and relive the history that BTS and ARMY made together so far, and will continue to make in the future to come.
This will be BTS’ first album since November 2020 “BE”. The pre-order for Proof begins on May 5 at 11 am KST (7:30 am IST). The album arrives on June 10, 2022.
The group has been also nominated in six different categories at this year’s awards show including Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Billboard Global Artist (excluding the U.S.), Top Selling Song (nominated twice with “Butter” and “Permission To Dance“), Top Billboard Global Song (excluding the U.S.), and Top Rock Song.
