Djo is the musical project of actor/producer and songwriter Joe Keery. Today, the multi-artist has shared his new track “Gloom”. The track is off DJO’s full-length album DECIDE, which drops on September 16th via AWAL and DSPs. A few weeks ago, Djo shared the first single from the forthcoming record “Change.”
Djo’s new album, DECIDE is the follow up to TWENTY TWENTY, his 2019 guitar-forward record and his first solo-effort since departing his band, the Chicago psych rock outfit Post Animal. Keery –who is of course also known far and wide for his acting roles in Stranger Things – has been making music since his teens, spending over two years with Post Animal before making his solo debut as Djo. DECIDE was created with musician / engineer Adam Thein throughout the pandemic with final recording taking place at Sound Factory in Los Angeles. DECIDE serves as a sort of aural history of Keery’s late 20’s. It features reflections on growth, relationships and navigating it all in a world filled with technology at its center. It’s his sonic ambitions however that take these introspections and melt them into a warped reality with each layered synth pulling the listener’s emotional strings.
Djo has been performing live throughout 2022, road-testing the songs from DECIDE and making appearances so far this year at Shaky Knees, Boston Calling and Bottle Rock festivals. Fans can catch him this weekend at Lollapalooza, and later this fall at Austin City Limits Festival. Djo’s set at Lollapalooza will stream live via Hulu at 3:15 PM CT on the Main Stage.
