The tracklist for South Korean musician Suga’s new album, “D-Day,” which he co-wrote with fellow K-pop boyband BTS, has been made public. ‘D-Day’ will also include music by the late Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto.
The K-pop star today (April 10) released the tracklist for his upcoming first solo album, titled “D-Day,” which will include collaborations with four other musicians. They include J-hope from BTS on “HUH?!,” Woosung from The Rose on “Snooze,” and the late Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
Woosung is going to feature on Agust D (SUGA of BTS) new album D-Day.

After a battle with cancer, Sakamoto passed away last month at the age of 71. His work as a film-score composer on films like Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrance, and The Revenant, among others, made him the most famous. According to Korea JoongAng Daily, he allegedly held a meeting with Suga back in September 2022.
The pre-release song “People Pt. 2” with IU is also included in “D-Day.” According to the tracklist, the album’s lead single, “Haegeum” (pronounced “geum”), was entirely produced by the BTS member.
The release of Suga’s first solo album, “D-Day,” is scheduled for April 21 at 1 pm KST. The musician will also release Suga: Road to D-Day, his upcoming Disney+ documentary, on the same day.
Suga will be followed on a “musical odyssey” as he traverses the globe “in quest of inspiration in the form of new sounds and experiences,” per a Disney+ press release about Suga: Road to D-Day.
Suga has made the entire version of his mixtape “August D” available on streaming services in advance of the release of “D-Day.” Due to a sample clearance issue with James Brown’s “It’s A Man’s Man’s Man’s World,” the tracks “Intro: DT sugA” and “Agust D” were previously inaccessible.
Suga has since been named the National Basketball Association’s (NBA) newest ambassador. In accordance with the agreement, the NBA will collaborate with Suga on a few of his upcoming performances in promotion of his debut solo album “D-Day.”
