Kang Daniel drops ‘Mad Max’-inspired visual for ‘Wasteland’

Kang Daniel has released a brand-new song called ‘Wasteland’, alongside a filmic visual clip.

‘Wasteland’ is the first taste of Kang Daniel’s upcoming fifth mini-album ‘Realiez’, which is set to be released on June 19. The new song, co-written and -composed by the K-pop idol, is his second fully English song after ‘Look Where We Are’.

“‘Cause you took my heart from a graceland / You left me for dead, and I gave up on trust / You kindled the flame now it’s wasteland / Woah, wasteland,” he sings on the moody song.
