Stray Kids are back and out to take over the world with their bold sound yet again.
The JYP Entertainment boy group dropped their latest mini-album, ODDINARY, on 18 March 2022, to much fanfare. The Kingdom winners achieved a record of 1.3 million pre-orders for the album, breaking their own record of 1 million pre-orders with their second full album, NOEASY.

Consisting of 7 tracks, the self-produced album also comes with the release of a music video for the title song, 'MANIAC'. A hard-hitting track fitting for the monster group, 'MANIAC' is a bold declaration by the group about standing tall as themselves, defying social norms in a society preoccupied with keeping up appearances. Interjected with graphic effects and a strong dance, the music video shows the group in a fresh yet bold image.
Stray Kids will be performing their new title song live on M COUNTDOWN on 22 March 2022, 9 PM KST, and are set to appear on The Late Show on the same day at 10 PM ET. They will also be holding a Listening Party on 21 March and 22 March 2022, 10 AM KST on Stationhead.
