K-Pop superstar Kang Daniel returned with his new album Yellow on April 13. The record marked the third and final chapter of his COLOR series, which began in February last year.
His chart-topping single “Paranoia” made Kang Daniel’s debut on the Billboard World Digital Song Sales Charts as a soloist, as well as ranking first in 10 countries and charting in over 26 regions on iTunes.
The music video garnered more than 20 million views in just under four days on YouTube, a personal best for Kang Daniel and 20 times faster than last year’s “Who U Are.”
Yellow is expected to pick up from where “Paranoia” left off, exploring a more serious, introspective side of the artist. The EP release will continue to touch on a difficult period in the young artist’s career and his process to find resolution in his darkest moments, discovering the silver lining between conflict and pain.
Antidote the album’s title song, was revealed as an alternative R&B track where Kang Daniel, once again participated as a lyricist. Rock elements have been hinted at providing a glimpse into Kang Daniel’s evolution as an artist.
Antidote writers include Jonathan Hoskins, credited under artists such as Partynextdoor and Alec Benjamin as well as K-pop mainstays, Anthony Pavel and MZMC. The mix comes at the hands of Denis Kosiak, whose notable works include Khalid, Zayn, and Conan Gray.
His album will be available on all streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify.
