Kang Daniel is back!

With the release of his new full-length album, The Story, K-Pop icon KANGDANIEL makes an explosive return to musicmaking. The highly anticipated album, which features ten songs co-written by the Korean pop superstar himself, showcases stories from his own perspectives and experiences.

The lead track “Upside Town” is a midtempo tune written by KANGDANIEL, Chancellor, Knave and composed by Sean Kennedy and MZMC. The catchy new single brims with a clear Rhodes piano and a solid guitar foundation with mixed drums, whistles, and clapping sounds.

The song’s official release is accompanied by a vibrant music video that takes place in various locations, including a neon-lit barbershop, a rooftop carpark, and a laundromat. It also features KANGDANIEL and his team of talented dancers delivering an astounding choreography with hip-hop and street dance elements.

“I want to tell the stories as a storyteller,” the South Korean multimedia artist says. “I would be grateful if you just enjoy and feel relaxed with The Story. I hope you like it.”

The Story serves as his first full-length album, and follows the release of his chart-topping EP, Yellow, which is certified platinum in South Korea. KANGDANIEL’s new album also includes collaborations with some of the biggest names in K-Pop: Korean-American singer/rapper Jessi on “Don’t Tell,” sokodomo on “How We Love,” and Dbo on “Loser.”
