LOS ANGELES, June 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Netmarble has announced “A Brand New Day,” the second song available from the BTS WORLD original soundtrack, will be released on June 14 at 2 am PDT/6 pm KST.
“A Brand New Day” is an electronic hip-hop song by j-hope and V, which features Zara Larsson, a next generation pop star from Sweden. The song was produced by British hip-hop electronic music producer and beat maker Mura Masa.
Mura Masa’s unique beat and sound of East Asian musical instrumentation offer a bold and harmonious feeling in the song. The Korean traditional musical instrument daegeum leads the song, highlighting the most Korean yet trendy sound, and the combination of Eastern and Western vocals create perfect harmony.
“Dream Glow”, released on June 7, and new song “A Brand New Day” are original songs created for BTS WORLD as fresh, new music to coincide with the game’s story of a parallel universe. BTS WORLD’s full, original soundtrack, including the third to be revealed on June 21, will be released on June 28.
With the new song, Netmarble opened BTS WORLD’s “Another Story,” in which each member of BTS appears as the main character, through its official website. Two stories of RM and Jin were opened on June 10 and 12, and more stories of other members will come sequentially.
Netmarble is also revealing a preview of text messaging with BTS members, which is one of the main interactive content components of the game, through the BTS WORLD website. The reactions of BTS members vary by responses selected by the players, and their individual characteristics can be seen through how they react.
