BTS made a new version of “Make It Right,” and it will be released on Friday, October 18.
The new version of the track features singer-songwriter Lauv. Per an official press release, it will be available at 5AM ET Friday morning (6PM Friday evening in Korea).
“The track brings new lyrical and vocal changes to the original ‘Make It Right’ from MAP OF THE SOUL : PERSONA, the hit collaboration with world-famous singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran,” says the official press release. “Lauv comes onboard as featured artist together with his own additions to the English lyrics. Lauv’s signature soft and delicate vocals are weaved together with the melody of the song to bring to the fore a wistful yet refined sensibility. BTS and Lauv’s vocal blend offers a unique charm that is just as special as the original’s.”
In addition to the new audio, BTS will be releasing a new music video for the song. Said video will pair an animated interpretation of the song’s lyrics with scenes of BTS performing during its “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” tour.
Lauv joins an impressive list of artists who have collaborated with BTS. Other recent collaborators include Juice WRLD, Zara Larsson, Charli XCX and Halsey.
