Dijon "Do You Light Up?"

Dijon, recently dropped his EP, How Do You Feel About Getting Married?. Along with the album, Dijon has shared opening track “do you light up?” Today also marks the release of Dijon’s collaboration with Charli XCX entitled “pink diamonds,” from her new album How I Feel Now. Dijon’s How Do You Feel About Getting Married? builds from the Americana-tinged, R&B palate he introduced on his debut EP Sci Fi 1.

Speaking on the journey of making this EP, Dijon says: “Inspired by Lucinda Williams, Little Feat and Burial. Norah Jones, Octavia Butler, and The Cars. Joanie and living in Highland Park with her and the sound of pedal steel. Many friends came around to help with things and they shaped the record. How exciting to be motivated by people and to hear them talking and playing alongside you in a small room! Romance is all over these little stories, and so is disappointment and so is desperation; and they are little stories. And maybe they all talk to each other? (Wheels within wheels).”

How Do You Feel About Getting Married? marks a new chapter for Dijon after a busy year, including the release of his debut EP Sci Fi 1, as well as bringing his live show to the world for the first time on tour with Omar Apollo. Most recently, he was scheduled to hit the road with Vampire Weekend on a tour run kicking off at the end of May (those dates have since been postponed).
