“Jack In The Box,” with the lead tracks “MORE” and “Arson,” dropped Friday afternoon. According to BigHit Music, the album breaks the mold and reflects J-Hope’s passion and contemplation about his future paths.

The hard copy of the album goes on sale on July 29. Until then, listeners are able to stream it or purchase a digital version of the album on the fan community platform Weverse. The Weverse album is a QR code-based service that provides listeners with digital versions of the pictures that are on the hardcopy album.

The album cover art was designed by the American artist KAWS, whose artworks J-Hope has consistently expressed his affection for over the years.
