Dijon Shares New Single “Rodeo Clown”
Dijon, has shared his second single, “Rodeo Clown.” The track is lifted from his debut album Absolutely, out November 5th. The track is a tearful outpouring on the fragility and pain of unrequited love set to the backdrop of a sweaty summer night at a small town Rodeo.
Last week, Dijon announced Absolutely by sharing the release date and a live performance of the opening track. The performance of “Big Mike’s” showcased the passion and atmosphere of the Absolutely recording process. Dijon released the album’s first single “Many Times” in September, which arrived with a frantic music video with a warped view behind the improvisational creation of the album. Absolutely was recorded over the course of a few fervent weeks whilst in tight confines with a close-knit group of collaborators and friends. The album channels the emotion of Dijon’s live show.
Dijon rounded out the year with his collaboration “The Stranger,” featuring John C. Reilly, Tobias Jesso Jr., Sachi, Dan Reeder, and Becky and the Birds, which Rolling Stone said, “feels as if it contains a sprawling, occasionally strange, but ultimately cohesive little universe inside of it.”
Dijon was also recently announced as a member of the #YouTubeBlack Voices Music Class of 2022, a fund which YouTube created to amplify Black voices on their platform.
