In a punny social media post Monday, Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio revealed that his first solo album will arrive this summer. Glassnote Records will put out the album.
“I’m beyond thrilled to be releasing music on such a world-class label. I’ve been a fan of Glassnote and its artists for years,” Baio said in a statement to Glassnote.
Baio, who served as a radio DJ during his college days, describes the album as “Bowie and Ferry-influenced pop songs and dumbsmart arena techno comfortably coexist.” As a solo artist operating under his surname, Baio has released multiple EPs, such as Mira and Sunburn.
He plans to tour after the release of his solo album.
