“Damn Near Normal,” the latest song from Koe Wetzel, breaks a nearly two-year hiatus since his 2022 hit “Hell Paso.” This song delves into the singer’s raw and genuine experiences, highlighting his battle for normalcy amidst a lifestyle far removed from the conventional.

Crafted alongside Gabe Simon, Amy Allen, Carrie Karpinen, and Sam Harris, the track showcases Wetzel’s introspective journey through his unconventional life choices. It underscores a realization that his existence doesn’t quite align with the traditional notion of “normal.”

Reflecting on the song, which is released under Columbia Records, Wetzel shares, “‘Damn Near Normal’ talks about the unconventional nature of our lives. The routine of waking up in new places, the nights spent performing for our amazing fans – it’s a wild, unparalleled experience far from what many would consider ‘normal.’ Yet, this chaotic ride is exactly how I love it.”

The song opens with Wetzel’s acknowledgment of the traditional life script – a stable job, a loving wife, and two kids – a script from which he consciously veers to chase his musical aspirations.

Despite the loneliness and uncertainties this choice brings, Wetzel sings about embracing his unique path with various coping strategies. These include drinking excessively, relying on melatonin and marijuana, and even turning to Xanax, all to find some semblance of peace.

The chorus’s recurring line, “damn near normal,” signifies Wetzel’s acceptance of his extraordinary life as his version of normal. He concludes, “Sure, it’s a bit off from what’s expected, but to me, that’s damn near normal.”

Through “Damn Near Normal,” Wetzel opens up about finding contentment in a life that defies conventional standards, inviting listeners to understand and perhaps relate to his candid confession.

Alongside the release of “Damn Near Normal,” Koe Wetzel also unveiled a compelling music video for the song, directed by John Park. The video takes viewers on a nostalgic journey back to Wetzel’s roots in Pittsburgh, Texas, where he revisits the scenes of his upbringing.

The video kicks off with Wetzel pondering, “Where should I start?” before taking the audience through a tour of his childhood home. As the story unfolds, viewers are treated to a blend of current and past visuals, including his old high school, beloved local hangouts, and cherished family videos and photographs. These elements collectively paint a picture of Wetzel’s life experiences.

Reflecting on the creation of the music video, Wetzel expressed, “I returned to my roots, capturing my childhood home and the essence of my hometown on film, revealing every facet of my current life juxtaposed against my past. This project was an opportunity to debunk myths about who I am. Despite what people might think, I’ve stayed grounded. I’m just an ordinary guy who’s passionate about making music. From the beginning, my life has been about music, and that hasn’t changed.”

Through this visual narrative, Wetzel invites viewers to see beyond the misconceptions, emphasizing his unchanged, genuine self amidst his musical journey.
