After announcing his comeback, Kang Daniel finally released “Paranoia,” sharing a darker side of himself that he hasn’t shown before.
The solo artist co-wrote the lyrics to the song, giving the haunting solo and music video a deeper and more personal touch as he shares his personal journey in battling his inner demons and nightmares.
The addictive and rhythmic beat paired with the stunning and chilling scenes makes “Paranoia” a memorable song that tells not only Kang Daniel’s story, but the story of many others who have experienced the same pains and fears.
It’s quite a heavy topic, but it’s things & emotions that I’ve really been through. Now that I’ve settled it, I want to honestly express it. It’s definitely a little heavy, but I chose to think that everyone has been through it at least once.
— Kang Daniel
Moving forward, Kang Daniel expressed that he “[doesn’t] want to decorate myself with fakes, and even if it’s a bit lacking, it’s also me. I want to be a person who empathizes and impresses someone.” With such a stunning and honest comeback, he’s already on the right track.
