BTS ARMY, this is not a drill: RM promised that a solo album would be arriving in the imminent future, and now a date has been set, along with the project’s official title. On Thursday (Nov. 10), the rapper dropped the news via Instagram, sharing a photo of a bright blue patch of denim, along with the LP’s details.

“Indigo” RM captioned this post. “RM 1st Solo Album, 12/2.”

BigHit Music, BTS’ music label shared the news along with a photo showing a blue fabric swatch and the album title in white. The label also added that Indigo will be released on Dec. 2 at 12 a.m. ET and 2 p.m. KTV

Indigo “Recounts the stories and experiences RM’s gone through, like a journal,” a press release stated about the project. “The album will present a new charm of RM with different featured artists.” (No names have been released yet.)

Indigo is RM’s first solo album. However, he has previously released two mixtapes. He was the first of the BTS members to share solo material, dropping his self-titled mixtape in 2015, which contained singles “Do You,” “Awakening” and “Joke.” RM then released a second mixtape in 2018 titled Mono. “Forever Rain” was released as the only single from this latter body of work, and the set debuted at No. 26 on the Billboard 200.

RM’s solo album will be announced shortly after Jin, a BTS member, released his solo track “The Astronaut” on the 200Billboard Hot 51 on the Billboard Hot 100.
