Taeyang’s newest solo Album White Night has finally been released! The two title tracks are Wake Me Up and Darling both of which show off Taeyang’s insanely beautiful voice. Personally, I’m more drawn to Wake Me Up which is a little more upbeat than the piano-based Darling (but I love the whole album as well).
Wake Me Up is an electronic R&B song that was written and produced by Kush and Joe Rhee. It’s a love song and the lyrics are about not wanting to wake up from a relationship and the desire to make a moment to last forever. Wake Me Up is a beautiful love song and the upbeat chorus pretty much gets stuck in your head after the first listen and it suits Taeyang’s vocal range so well! I am in love with this track 😍
The music video focuses on Taeyang wandering around his apartment alone as if he has gone through a break-up, which I am guessing is the reality he finds himself in and the fantastical shots that are mixed in are his dreams. In these stunning dream shots, he is submerged in a water tank, walking through a forest or covered in glitter. Basically, Taeyang looks as gorgeous as ever in the different dreamscapes that he appears in and this mixture of reality and dreams makes for an interesting and cool visual experience that goes well with the theme of the song.
