The album was released on August 24, 2018, by Big Hit Entertainment and is available in four different versions: S, E, L, and F. The album contains twenty-five tracks (twenty-six for digital version), including seven new songs, with the track "Idol" serving as the lead single. Most tracks are from Love Yourself: Her, and Love Yourself: Tear, including some remixes. The album debuted at number one in South Korea, Canada, Japan and the United States, becoming BTS' second chart-topping album in the US market.

On November 7, 2019, Love Yourself: Answer became the first Korean album to spend one year on the Billboard 200 chart.[7] On November 9, it became the first Korean album to receive gold certification in the United States.[8] It sold 60,000 copies in the United Kingdom, making BTS the first Asian artist to have a Silver-certified album in the country.
