Korean pop group BTS is gifting fans with another album in February titled “BE (Essential Edition).” The said album is set to be released on Feb. 19 following an official announcement made last Jan. 24.

The new album comes not long after BTS released its “Deluxe Version” of “BE” in November.

It appears the new album is the group’s way of thanking the fans for helping them achieve a historic milestone. That included topping the Billboard Hot 100 and also getting nominated in the upcoming Grammy Awards, Inquirer.net reported. The K-Pop group got a nomination for best pop duo/group performance for "Dynamite," their first English language single.

It is also the first song to top both the Billboard Global Excl. U.S. and Billboard Global 200 charts at the same time.

The “BE (Essential Edition)’ will feature eight tracks. These are "Life Goes On," "Fly to My Room," "Blue & Grey," "Skit," "Telepathy," "Dis-Ease," "Stay," and their massive hit "Dynamite." The new album will feature some things different from the previous version, making it an album to watch out for, Billboard.com reported.

Aside from the “BE (Essential Edition” album coming out next month, BTS will also be giving surprise gifts to the ARMY in the days leading up to the “Essential Edition’s” release.

For those who may not be aware “BE” is composed of tracks that reflect the band’s thoughts on the current pandemic. The album was produced with members playing actively behind-the-scene roles during its production.

To elaborate, Jimin took part as the music project manager, while V supervised the overall visuals of the album. Jungkook directed the teasers and music video for the lead track.

This turned out well for BTS as the album debuted at no. 1 on the Billboard’s main albums chart. The lead track, “Life Goes On,” also became the first song that was rendered in Korean to top the main singles chart.
