Inspired by his time touring and exploring international territory in support of his debut album 2019’s SUGA, the upcoming project is bold, unfiltered, and flaunts an unleashed sound with a “no rules” mission statement.
To create an effective turn-up record, Kyle needed to access sides of his personality he hadn’t explored before musically. Once he loosened up and became comfortable laughing at himself and the process, in part due to his light-hearted relationship with album collaborators, producers, and friends Chris Hartz (Childish Gambino) and Bijou Choder (Brasstracks), he found the sound of the album, a joyous and exclamatory soundtrack to better times and the world to come.
Previously released tracks from Kyle Dion’s bold, unfiltered new album include “Placebo” featuring rap icon Ja Rule and “Purr” featuring Kari Faux, whom Pitchfork calls a “clever rapper-singer who won’t be defined.”
The two singles are fun and vibrant, setting the scene for Kyle’s pop-inflected sound that comes alive on the upcoming project. Seductive and summery, this album is perfect for BBQs, laying poolside, or taking a late-night drive.
