Djo (the musical project of actor / producer / songwriter Joe Keery), shares his new track “Gloom” – a frenetic, Talking Heads-inspired kiss off. The full album, DECIDE will be out on September 16th, with pre-order, album artwork and tracklisting to come on Thursday HERE. A few weeks ago, Djo shared the first single from the forthcoming record – “Change.”
Djo’s new album, DECIDE is the follow up to TWENTY TWENTY, his 2019 critically acclaimed guitar-forward record and his first solo-effort since departing his band, the Chicago psych rock outfit Post Animal. Keery –who is of course also known far and wide for his acclaimed acting roles in such blockbuster projects as Stranger Things – has been making music since his teens, spending over two years with Post Animal before making his solo debut as Djo. DECIDEwas created with musician / engineer Adam Thein throughout the pandemic with final recording taking place at Sound Factory in Los Angeles. DECIDE serves as a sort of aural history of Keery’s late 20’s. It features reflections on growth, relationships and navigating it all in a world filled with technology at its center. It’s his sonic ambitions however that take these introspections and melt them into a warped reality with each layered synth pulling the listener’s emotional strings.
