The band teased Tear in a special video for the track "Euphoria" back in April, though it left many fans speculating as to what exactly the name of the album would be.

Love Yourself: Tear will be the sequel to the band's 2017 album Love Yourself: Her, the second album in the Love Yourself series but the first of the two to be full-length. The album will be the band's third Korean studio album, following the release of their Japanese studio album Face Yourself, in April 2018. Overall, Tear will be the band's sixth studio release.
