July 24 (UPI) -- South Korean boy band BTS will release a new album in September.

The K-pop stars confirmed plans for the project Monday, according to Joins.

Osen reported the group's agency, Big Hit Entertainment, said the boy band has yet to decide if the album will be a mini or full-length album. The singers last released their second studio album, Wings, in October.

Rolling Stone named BTS one of "10 New Artists You Need to Know" in a new feature last week. Rap Monster told the magazine he often draws inspiration for the group's music from books and movies.

"I've been reading books, as many as I can, since I was five, seven, 10 years old, and before I made music I wanted to be an author," the 22-year-old rapper said. "Authors really create those human expressions too, like some specific feelings."

"There are so many great diamonds in books and movies and we always try to get inspiration from them," he added. "We don't have so much time to experience outside, like other people ... so books and movies are the best things to experience instead of going outside."

BTS will perform with veteran singer Seo Taiji at his 25th anniversary concert in September. The group released a music video for their remake of Seo's hit song "Come Back Home" this month.
