The album, which will feature the Korean band’s first English single, “Darl+ing,” serves as a follow-up to 2019’s “An Ode.”
CARATS, the new album from SEVENTEEN is coming sooner than you think. The K-pop group announced on Thursday (April 21) that their fourth LP, titled Face the Sun, will be released on May 27. SEVENTEEN’s management company, Pledis Entertainment, said in March that the group was “preparing to release a full-length studio album next month.”
SEVENTEEN fans got a glimpse into what to expect from the album with the release of their first English-language single, “Darl+ing.” The song debuted on April 15, serving as a thank-you to the group’s fans.
In a press conference with Billboard, Joshua said, “We always wanted to thank our global CARATs for all the love that they send to us and loving our songs even though they don’t understand Korean, don’t understand our language, but we’re hoping that this album will serve as a gift to our CARATs to show how much we’re thankful for their love and support.”
