FROM NEW ALBUM ‘MAN OF THE WORLD’ OUT NOW ON GLASSNOTE RECORDS…

“…it’s the album we need in 2017: a juxtaposition of hopeful music and apprehensive lyrics, vocalizing concerns many of us are feeling but few can so masterfully articulate”

“Opener Vin Mariani is like Hot Chip given a mariachi makeover, while PHILOSOPHY! delivers punchy alt-disco Phoenix would be proud of”

**** Q

“When ‘Man of the World’ lands its blows, its intelligence and self-awareness are a knockout”

“It’s the kind of thing that’ll allure fans of Hot Chip and Django Django”

Baio has unveiled the brilliant new video to his current single ‘Man Of The World’, which will be released September 8th on Glassnote Records. The video, co-directed by Baio and Scott Peters, sees the London-based New Yorker go on a whistle stop tour of some of the world’s most famous landmarks and cities. Watch here.

Says Baio of the video: “Using cutting-edge technology, Scott Peters and I were able to make a video that features places I’ve been (Lake Malawi, Rio, London) and others I have not (Patagonia, Niagara Falls). I’m particularly proud of the scene where I moonwalk on stage at Carnegie Hall and I believe the ending features the best Burj Khalifa scene since ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol.’ Enjoy!

 

 

The follow-up to recent single ‘PHILOSOPHY!’, ‘Man Of The World’ is the title track from Baio’s critically acclaimed sophomore solo album, which was written and recorded in Brixton. Co-produced by John Foyle and mixed by Bruce Lampcov (Bryan Ferry, The The), ‘Man of the World’ is a body of work that addresses themes of alienation, paranoia, and political will to power that are belied by airy melodies and a crystalline pop sheen.

 

‘PHILOSOPHY!’ received a video treatment from Dan Navetta who combined playfulness and sophistication to bring Baio’s lyrics, melody and vision to life (WATCH HERE). Baio sat down with Drowned In Sound, The Line Of Best Fit, Billboard, The 405, VMAN, Relix and many others to discuss how ‘Man of the World’ came to be and its undeniable themes.

 

Today, Baio announces a series of headline tour dates before and after he supports The Shins on their U.S. tour in November. Tickets for the headline shows go on sale this Friday at www.baiobaio.com, full listing below.

PRAISE FOR ‘MAN OF THE WORLD’

 

“Beautiful Album” – THE 405

Instant indie classic” – WONDERLAND MAGAZINE

 

“These emotions, revolving around the ever-present fear still felt around the world, shaped into a record of heartbreak, loss, and most of all: hope.” – POPDUST

 

“Chris Baio has been making delightful pop music on his own for quite a while now…Like most Baio videos, it’s fun and low-key…” – STEREOGUM [PHILOSOPHY! VIDEO]

“The song is more haunting than his previous work, which shows a sign of evolution for the solo artist.” – PASTE [DANGEROUE ANAMAL]

“Baio has given us another taste of what we can expect with this six-minute electro atmospheric treat called ‘DANGEROUE ANAMAL’, that is sure to strengthen any anticipations for this new album…” – ACID STAG

“If you need another shot of sunny pop to brighten your day, Baio’s “Out Of Tune” is the song for you. Warm and lovingly DIY, the Vampire Weekend bassist is carving out a niche as purveyor of weird and wonderful tunes.” – IDOLATOR
