Djo (actor Joe Keery from Stranger Things) has announced the release of his second solo album, Decide, which will be out on September 16. He has also shared a new song from the album, “Change.” Listen below, followed by Djo’s upcoming tour dates.
Djo’s debut solo album, TWENTY TWENTY, came out in 2019. He was previously a part of the Chicago psych rock band Post Animal.
On DECIDE Keery worked with musician/engineer Adam Thein during the pandemic. The final recordings for the album happened at Sound Factory in Los Angeles.
A press release describes the album in greater detail: “DECIDE serves as a sort of aural history of Keery’s late 20s. 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.”
The album’s tracklist and cover art have yet to be shared.
Djo Tour Dates:
July 30 – Bottom Lounge – Chicago, IL – SOLD OUT
July 31 – Lollapalooza – Chicago, IL
Sept 17 – Sea, Hear, Now Festival – Asbury Park, NJ
Oct 15 – Austin City Limits, Austin, TX
