It has been less than a week since the release of Jungkook’s second solo track, 3D (2023).

The BTS member produced the track in collaboration with American rapper and singer Jack Harlow.

Much to fans’ excitement, Jungkook’s promotional activities continues.

On Wednesday (4 Oct), his label BigHit Music dropped the promotion schedule for Jungkook’s first solo album titled Golden.

According to the promotion schedule, the album will arrive officially on 3 Nov, at 1PM KST (12PM KST).

There will also be mystery releases on 6, 8, 16 and 20 Nov.

An official notice on BTS’ Weverse has revealed: “Golden is an album inspired by the golden moments of Jungkook, the golden maknae of BTS and solo artist”.

The notice also shared that there will be 11 tracks in the album.

The album’s track list includes two previously released singles, Seven (2023) and 3D (2023).

Jungkook collaborated with American rapper Latto for the former as well as American singer-rapper Jack Harlow for the latter.

Seven feels like a soulful summer R&B track that contains some elements of dance-pop and a groovy house vibe. Think the UK garage genre.

On the other hand, 3D is primarily a pop R&B track seasoned with various Western influences.

It talks about feelings toward an unattainable person from various dimensions.

It’s also a tastefully cheeky track by Jungkook, who’s previously known for his boy-next-door innocent image.

Separately, fans are also eagerly anticipating the release of Golden, as Jungkook will be performing special stages and making various appearances.

Many fans on Twitter have also remarked that the album’s concept reminded them of the luxurious packaging of high-end brands.

The album is now available for pre-order. There are three standard versions for the album: Shine, Solid, and Substance, along with a Weverse version.
