K-pop stars, BTS, hailed as the world’s biggest band, have announced their highly-anticipated newest chapter with their new album ‘MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA’ due for release Friday, April 12, 2019.

Following on from their hugely successful ‘LOVE YOURSELF’ series, that topped the Billboard chart, the upcoming album marks the beginning of a new era for the septet.

Currently on the last leg of their ‘LOVE YOURSELF’ world tour, the announcement of the album comes after news of a spring tour ‘Speak Yourself’ -spanning eight stadiums across North and South America, Europe, and Asia- with two sold-out shows at Wembley Stadium on June 1 and 2.

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
