V is the latest member of BTS to unveil plans for a solo project. His new six-track album, titled Layover, will be released on September 8th.
Layover consists of five songs: “Rainy Days,” “Blue,” Love Me Again,” “Slow Dancing,” and “For Us.” The tracklist also includes a bonus piano version of “Slow Dancing.” Below, you can find descriptions for each of the songs as provided by BigHit Music.
What’s more, all five of the album songs come with companion music videos.
V will support the release with “amazing new performances” and various appearances.
V’s solo album will follow projects from BTS bandmates Jungkook, j-hope, RM, Jimin, SUGA, and Jin. The group took a pause from joint activities so that each member could complete his mandatory service period in the South Korean military. Earlier today, SUGA joined Jin and j-hope in active duty.
