BTS released their highly anticipated three-disc anthology album titled “Proof” today alongside a music video for the title track “Yet To Come (The Most Beautiful Moment).”
The 48-track album features three new songs — “Yet To Come,” “Run BTS” and “For Youth” — and coincides with the group’s ninth anniversary. The first two discs are available digitally, but the third disc is physical only.
BTS is also encouraging fans to submit YouTube shorts about their favorite memories with the band as part of the #MyBTStory YouTube challenge. All of the tracks in “Proof” are curated by BTS and are meant to capture the group’s journey of smash records and historic milestones that have taken them everywhere from the United Nations to outer space and the White House.
Leader RM said: “I always get nervous when we release a new song for the first time. I hope many people like it. ‘Proof’ is a special album that wraps up Chapter 1 of BTS’s story as we face the ninth anniversary of our debut. As the focus of the album is our message for our fans who have been together with us for the past nine years, we paid the most attention to our lyrics.”
Jin added: “Because ‘Proof’ is an album that encapsulates BTS’s history, it keeps bringing to mind different memories from the past nine years. I myself will be listening to it often. Because there are new songs and unreleased songs on the album, fans will be able to enjoy listening to it as well.”
Suga, who collaborated with Psy on the music video “That That” in April, said: “Because it’s an album that encapsulates BTS’s history, we paid careful attention to how the songs were organized on the album. If you listen to the album starting from the first track, there’ll be a certain fun in listening to it in order.”
J-Hope, who was recently announced to headline Lollapalooza, said: “‘Proof’ is an album that summarizes the biography of BTS and our fans ARMY, and it’s all the more special because our memories and time together are captured in it. Since the album contains BTS’s soul, I hope you’ll give it lots of love.”
Jimin remarked: “I felt that it was all the more special because [working on the album] allowed me to peruse the other members’ emotions as well as my own and because we were able to talk about them together.”
V said: “As it’s an album that captures our journey of the past nine years, I sincerely hope that it will become a precious gift for the fans who have always cheered us on and have made history for us.”
Lastly, Jungkook, who may have a project in the works with singer Charlie Puth, said: “It feels like we’ve been writing a really thick book and are now finishing it. Just like we’ve always done with our albums up until now, we paid attention to all aspects while working on it. It’s an album that does a good job conveying BTS’s story up until now, as well as our current feelings.”
