We are elated to share the news that Toro y Moi is back with a new album, Outer Peace, the follow-up to last year’s highly-emotive Boo Boo. The new record sees Chaz Bear, formerly Bundick, continuing to explore his limits sonically and thematically, serving as a homecoming celebration of an album that was written and recorded in the Bay Area after spending a year in Portland surrounded by the solace of nature. Upon returning home, Toro found inspiration for his new album in the stifling environment he came back to. Outer Peace is due out
January 18th, 2019.
Along with the announcement, Toro y Moi shared the album’s first single “Freelance”, an upbeat track infused elements of house and funk. The track’s accompanying visual is directed by Bear’s longtime collaborator Harry Israelson, who was also the creative director behind the album cover for Outer Peace. Watch the video here.
Outer Peace pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop. Bundle your purchase of an LP or CD with exclusive Toro y Moi socks! Limited LP includes clear vinyl, while the CD comes in a jewel case with a rainbow foil spine tray card. Get them while you can! “Freelance” is also streaming across all services worldwide.
“This record is a response to how disposable culture has become and how it affects creativity. While listening, you might pay attention or ignore — either way that’s ok, this is music for a creative mind.”
— Chaz Bear
