Baio is a ‘Man of the World’ with his brand new album

The Vampire Weekend bassist is back with another solo record.
Baio – the solo project of Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio – is set to release a brand new album this summer.

Titled ‘Man of the World’, it’s the follow up to 2015’s ‘The Names’ and is set to drop on June 30th. It comes with a lead single ‘PHILOSOPHY!’, which you can check out below.

In a statement, Baio explained: “Writing ‘Man of the World’ was my way of processing 2016, a year that began with the death of my favorite artist, David Bowie, and ended with the greatest political disruption of my adult life – all while I was a nomad, an American living in London, touring two continents, never fully of either place. It’s partially about being trapped in my own head, obsessing about things it was too late to change, feeling afraid and guilty and alone. It’s also my attempt to document a certain sense of loss that felt both intensely personal and like part of a larger collective experience many were going through at once.”
