BTS member Jung Kook has unveiled his new single, ‘Never Let Go’. After announcing the song earlier this week, the singer shared the intimate, thoughtful track with fans and dedicated it to the BTS ARMY.

“Never Let Go,” Jung Kook’s first solo track since the release of his 2023 LP, Golden, coincides with this year’s BTS Festa in Seoul, South Korea. It also arrives on the 10th anniversary of BTS’ debut album, Dark & Wild, serving “as a gesture of appreciation and love for ARMY worldwide.”

“Without your love I’m nothing/ You mean more than you know,” Jung Kook sings on the track. “And words escape me whenever you’re close.

The 2024 BTS Festa will commence June 13, with Jin — having recently completed his mandatory military service — the focus of the festivities. “Jin will give a light hug to each of 1,000 fans onsite,” HYBE and Big Hit Music said Saturday. “The event was prepared according to Jin’s wish to greet and interact with fans in a more personal setting.”

They added, “In giving back to ARMY’s unwavering support, Jin has selected the offline event as his first official appearance after the completion of his military obligation. Dispelling concerns surrounding the group’s time of mandatory service, Jin’s appearance is set to signal a highly anticipated next chapter for BTS.”

Jung Kook released Golden — featuring guests like Major Lazer, Jack Harlow, Latto, and DJ Snake — in November. Earlier this year, he appeared on bandmate J-Hope’s single ‘I Wonder.’
