Taeyeon has returned with a brand-new single titled “Happy.”
The K-pop singer channels ’50s doo-wop and Motown on the melodic springtime bop. The song captures the “warm, comfortable, fluttering and happiness found in time spent with loved ones,” a press release describes. On it, Taeyeon daydreams of reuniting with her lover as the warmer season arrives. “A wonderful night I dream in your arms / Let’s whisper our wishes for a long time / We’re together, I’m happy / This dream will last forever,” she sings on the chorus.
In the accompanying retro-inspired visual, the love-drunk K-pop idol doodles in her journal and cleans her apartment while waiting for her partner to come home. In the latter half of the romantic clip, the singer puts on a pink gown and frolics through a flowery garden as fireworks go off.
“Happy” is the latest release from Taeyeon. In January, she put out a repackaged version of her sophomore album, Purpose. It included three additional new songs, “My Tragedy,” “Drawing Our Moments” and “Dear Me.”
