If you're a BTS fan then we've got some good news for you!

The K-pop group have announced that their new album, titled Map of the Soul: Persona, will be released on 12 April.

It comes ahead of the group's upcoming world tour, throughout North and South America, Europe, and Asia.

All the US and European shows have sold out, including two dates at London's iconic Wembley Stadium.

The title of the album was previously hinted to during an introductory video before the group's performance at the 2018 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) in Hong Kong when they mentioned the phrase.

The BTS boys have more and more competition, with new K-pop acts like TXT and BLACKPINK already making waves in the music world.
