BTS member Jimin has announced the release of his new solo album, “Face,” on March 24 via Big Hit Music.
The announcement of Jimin’s first full-length solo project came in the form of a short video clip that revealed the title of the record, which, according to a press release, refers to “Jimin facing himself head-on as he prepares for his next steps.”
The announcement also stated that special fan activities would take place during the album’s release week. The collection will be available for pre-order on February 22 at 9 p.m. ET.
Jimin first teased the album earlier this month during a Weverse live broadcast. “I’m currently preparing many things that I can do with you guys around that time,” he said, according to Soompi. “I’m planning a variety of activities for us to enjoy ourselves and have fun together, so I think you can look forward to it.”
Jimin previously collaborated with BigBang member Taeyang on the track “Vibe,” which marked Jimin’s first official release since BTS announced a break from group releases to allow the K-pop singers time to focus on solo endeavors. Jimin has previously performed solo on the songs “Lie,” “Serendipity,” and “With You” from the soundtrack to the TV drama “Our Blues.”
Members RM and j-hope are the most recent members to have released full-length solo albums, while Jin collaborated with Coldplay on “The Astronaut,” and Jungkook collaborated with Charlie Puth on “Left and Right” and performed “Dreamers” at the 2022 FIFA World Cup opening ceremony. Meanwhile, Suga was the first to announce a solo tour, which will begin in the United States and Asia at the end of April.
