Now, the BTS is giving a glimpse of what can fans expect from the album, reveal unit tracks and how it was made.

According to Big Hit Entertainment, "BTS opens themselves up to express their mixed feelings about this situation—fear and anxiety mingled with the determination to overcome all this. The album contains the band’s emotions and ruminations they had throughout this year, and the story of “us” continuing the existential journey. That is also the reasoning behind the album’s title, BE, that stands for “to be” or “existence” and does not abide by any form."

Furthermore, they further revealed the message behind the title track. 'Life Goes On' is an "Alternative Hip Hop track with sentimental acoustic guitar sounds captivating the ears of the listeners. The lyrics echo a comforting message in the face of unexpected turns and abrupt disruption. 'Life goes on'. Anyone who has been through 2020 can easily relate to this song delivered through BTS’ emotional voice... In 'Life Goes On,' BTS gives a warm consolation that 'life goes on' and speaks on behalf of everyone facing the new normality brought on by COVID-19."

Furthermore, explaining the tracks and revealing the unit songs, it was revealed that the second song 'Fly To My Room' is a unit track of SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, and V whereas track seven 'Stay' features RM, Jin, and Jungkook. 'Blue & Grey' is a pop ballad with guitar sounds at its forefront, 'Telepathy'  track is all about funky rhythm and 'Dis-ease' is old school hip-hop. Interestingly, 'Skit' is about the "vivid record of the conversations they had when they first topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart and 'Dynamite'."

They also explained what 'BE' means. "'BE', means “to be” & “existence. It doesn’t “abide by any form.” It’ll contain BTS’ “emotions and ruminations” they had this year, & express their mixed feelings, “the fear & anxiety and determination to overcome it all," the official release read.
