CAGAYAN DE ORO, Philippines — Fan favorite dreampop band KRNA recently released their newest track, I’m Wrong, which is now available on all major streaming and digital music platforms since March 8, 2024. The new track is the second single released off the band’s much anticipated full-length album Kireina, which is posed for a mid-2024 release.

I’m Wrong follows the critically acclaimed track Dream Again, released in October last year, which received a nod as one of the top Filiipino songs of 2023 in the yearend rundown for both CNN Philippines Life and Billboard Philippines.

Every decision, failure or even success, we question if we deserve them.

The song delves on themes of self-doubt and despair. “Every decision, failure or even success,” vocalist and songwriter KC Salazar mused, “we question if we deserve them.” The emotion translated well into a song, the arrangement of which began as a completely different track from a discontinued collaboration.

The production process for I’m Wrong likewise deviated from KRNA’s previous approaches. “This was the first song where I recorded vocals and guitars at home,” shares Salazar. “We recorded in a professional studio, but decided we loved the feel and sound of the demo vocals, so I re-recorded the whole thing at home.” The track also marks the first time the band collaborated with renowned musician and producer Jerome Velasco at the helm of mixing and mastering.

The stars are aligned on KRNA finally dropping their long awaited full length album Kireina this year, which will be available in both digital platforms and on 12” vinyl. Details are set to be announced soon.
