RM of BTS has announced the release of his debut solo album Indigo, set to drop next month. RM took to HYBE’s social networking platform Weverse to share a statement detailing the album: “Hello. Finally. Because of you, my first album is coming out. I prepared hard for four years. It’s very different from my previous work and there are a lot of fun friends included. Please support us until December 2.” RM previously released his self-titled debut mixtape in 2015, and his follow-up mixtape, Mono, was released in 2018 which included the single “Forever Rain.”
BTS’ label BIGHIT MUSIC also released their own statement about RM’s solo debut: “RM has already given fans an honest look into his world through two mixtapes. Through ‘Indigo’, RM delivers his candid thoughts and feelings and showcases wide-ranging music through collaborations with various artists.”
RM is the third member of BTS to release solo music this year, following J-Hope and Jin (who just released his song “The Astronaut” last month). The band members are focusing on individual projects after they announced over the summer that they would be taking a break as a group to pursue solo endeavors.
