Less than two weeks remain before BTS release their highly-anticipated Love Yourself: Tear album on May 18, but today (May 6) the guys surprised fans with a captivating music video featuring V performing the track “Singularity."
The “Singularity” video heavily focuses on the charismatic choreography delivered up by the BTS member and a team of dancers, inspired by contemporary interpretive dance. It begins with V dancing with a faceless coathanger of a partner, and then switches between scenes featuring him solo or with back-up. On his own, V is surrounded by haunting white masks and lush nature scenes, and recalls the song’s lyrics by interacting with a reflective pool.
It ends with V donning a white mask with a single, black tear dripping from one eye.
“Singularity” serves as the album’s “comeback trailer,” a distinction from Tear’s “Euphoria” theme video, which was released in April. Since their 2015 EP The Most Beautiful Moment In Life, Pt. 2, the group has preceded album releases with videos that feature tracks either partially or in their entirety.
The tracklist for Love Yourself: Tear has yet to be revealed, but it is known to be a full-length LP, the group’s third Korean one overall. It follows 2014’s Dark & Wildand 2016’s Wings.
