BTSJung Kook has revealed the track list for his highly-anticipated debut solo album Golden, with the LP featuring previously announced guests Jack Harlow and Latto along with Major Lazer and DJ Snake.

The 11-song Golden, due out November 3, boasts the singles ‘3D’ with Jack Harlow and both a clean and explicit version of the Latto-featuring track ‘Seven’. Major Lazer appear on ‘Closer To You’, while DJ Snake produces and features on ‘Please Don’t Change’.

Additionally, the song ‘Standing Next To You’ — co-produced by Andrew Watt and Cirkut — has been branded Golden’s “main track.”

Elsewhere in the track list shared by Big Hit, Ed Sheeran has a co-writing credit on ‘Yes Or No’ alongside Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, while songwriter David Stewart — one of the architects of the BTS hit ‘Dynamite’ — contributes two somber-sounding tracks, ‘Shot Glass Of Tears’ and ‘Too Sad To Dance’.

Golden takes its motif from the golden moments of Jung Kook as a solo artist. Known as the ‘Golden Maknae’ (‘golden youngest’ in Korean) of BTS, Jung Kook is set to unveil a new release with his unique timbre that will captivate listeners worldwide,” Big Hit Music previously said in a press release.

Following Golden’s release, Jung Kook will stage his first-ever solo concert — not counting festival appearances — when he performs at Seoul, South Korea’s Jangchung Arena on November 20.
