Bicycle is part of the ongoing 2021 “BTS Festa,” a two-week event that pays tribute to BTS’s journey as artists. This leads to the group’s upcoming debut anniversary on June 12.
In the group’s blog, RM said the song is inspired by his love for bicycles.
“My heart always flutters when I ride a bicycle, but whenever I place my two feet on the pedals, I also always feel a bit sad. Maybe it’s because there are many things I miss,” he added.
For RM, he hopes the song will become “your bicycle song” that will remain on fans’ playlists “for a long time.”
The self-written track was composed and arranged with singer-songwriter John Eun.
Bicycle is RM’s first solo release since his album Mono in 2018.
