It’s been just a few months since BTS released BE: Essential Edition and the septet is already back with new music. The worldwide chart toppers are about to release a full length Japanese album titled BTS: The Best.

The South Korean group have previously released their Japanese EP Map of the Soul: The Journey in 2020 containing Japanese versions of many of their chart topping songs. This new album will contain some of the same songs but also some new tunes and more Japanese versions of other fan favorites like “Spring Day.” The album will come in 4 different versions each including 2 CD’s full of music. Two other versions will contain a DVD or Blu-ray with making of videos and and the final version will have a photo book.

No new album announcement from Big Hit comes without an accompanying lead single and MV, of course. The lead single for the album titled “Film Out,” was teased a few days ago and the full version officially dropped today. Although the melody feels uplifting, the lyrics hint at a sad note of longing for what was lost and the past. Wishing to see old friends again. The MV itself gives hints and tie ins to the BTS Universe and it has similar visuals as “Fake Love,” and reinforces the theory of time loops and multiple parallel worlds. We see both Jin and Jungkook holding an hour glass to portray the passing of time in their current world. Taehyung can be seen in a room that mirrors Jin’s perfectly at one point and we also see Jin opening his door to see many other doors leading to different worlds. The scene of the room imploding and Jin taking cover is definitely similar to the one in “Fake Love” leading many to believe that Jin’s character is still going through that time loop trying to fix things for his friends.

“Film Out” was co-written by Jungkook with J-pop band Back Number, and will appear as the ending theme in the upcoming Japanese movie SIGNAL The Movie Cold Case Investigation Unit, opening April 2.

”Film Out” lyrics:

You, in my imagination
Are so vivid, oh-oh
As if you are right there
But I reach out my hand
And you suddenly disappear

From all the memories stored in my heart
I gather up the ones of you, link them together
Gazing at them projected across the room
I feel you with every burst of pain

Decay too far gone absorbing no light or water
Sealing my wounded heart with a rootless, leafless vow
Two glasses placed side by side, their role
Never fulfilled, ah, just as thеy were
Since you last touchеd them

From all the memories stored in my heart
I gather up the ones of you, link them together
Gazing at them projected across the room
I feel you with every burst of pain

Don’t have to be right
Just wanted you to stay the way you are
Kind hearted, always smiling, but
If tears can be measured, it took this long but
I’ve barely made it by your side (Barely made it)
And found you

From all the memories stored in my heart
I gather up the ones of you, link them together
Gazing at them projected across the room
I fall asleep with you vivid in my arms

The words you whisper, the resonance
Wander aimlessly around the room
The fragrance I smell, the warmth I feel
As long as it lasts, as long as it lasts

You, in my imagination
Are so vivid
As if you are right there
But I reach out my hand
And you suddenly disappear
