[Via Soompi] On April 13, Kang Daniel held a press conference for his new mini album YELLOW, where he spoke about his production process and more.
Regarding how quickly he was able to make his comeback, Kang Daniel shared, “I did my previous comeback after the production for this YELLOW album was complete. Since the message of this album is strong, I wanted to give a preview, which is why I picked my last song. This comeback was the original plan. I wanted to meet my fans quickly.”
YELLOW is the third and final part of Kang Daniel’s “color trilogy” (following CYAN and MAGENTA). He commented, “This is the last album of the ‘color’ series. I planned this with the message that not everything is as it appears. I wanted to talk about duplicity and contradictions through songs. It’s an album that lets out my inner feelings and contains an emotional aspect. It’s an album that’s like a late-night diary entry.”
Kang Daniel continued, “I think yellow is cute but yellow does not seem bright to me. It looks like street lamps at night, so it’s a color that is cold and makes me think to myself.”
He also spoke about his new title track “Antidote,” explaining, “It holds the story of feeling like you’re on the edge because of pain in your heart. You can’t cure hurt feelings with medicine. I wanted to draw out how contradictory it was to look for something that does not actually exist.”
Kang Daniel was also given time to evaluate himself as a solo artist. He explained, “I have many impressive seniors and colleagues in Korea. I don’t know exactly how far I’ve come, but I want to continue making my honest and raw music. Just because the color series is over does not mean my music will disappear. Please also look forward to my future steps.”
