BTS’ Jimin Announces Second Solo Album ‘MUSE’: Here’s When It Arrives

Jimin‘s art and muse are one and the same on his sophomore solo album, which the BTS star announced on Weverse Monday (June 17) is arriving later this summer.

Titled MUSE, the project will feature seven tracks, including the previously released single “Closer Than This,” which he dropped in December. The album will arrive July 19, less than a year and a half after the 28-year-old singer released his 2023 debut solo album FACE, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.


“Following his first solo album, ‘FACE,’ where he sought to explore his true identity, ‘MUSE’ documents his journey in search of the source of his inspiration,” reads BigHit Music’s post on Weverse, which notes that the project will showcase “Jimin’s expanded musical spectrum.”

Leading up to the album’s arrival, “a diverse array of content will be unveiled to provide a further glimpse” into MUSE, adds a press release from HYBE.

Jimin made his official solo debut in 2018 with the single “Promise.” Five years later, he became the first South Korean soloist to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Like Crazy,” with FACE‘s “Set Me Free, Pt. 2” also reaching No. 30 on the chart.

The news comes amid the singer’s 18-month mandatory service in the South Korean military, which he started in December alongside bandmates V, Jung Kook and RM. With the exception of Jin, who finished his service just last week, all of BTS is currently in the process of fulfilling their duties, with full-band activities expected to resume in 2025.
