Toro Y Moi Announces New Album ‘Hole Erth’

It's out on September 6th...

American artist Toro Y Moi has confirmed plans for new album ‘Hole Erth’.

The new project is his eighth studio album, and the title references Stewart Brand’s cult publication Whole Earth. Toro T Moi – Chaz Bear – comments…

“Things have gone in a more gorp-y direction. Humans are tapping into this more tribal, earthier aesthetic. The Whole Earth catalog is this encyclopedic, self-sustaining guide. With the album title alone, that’s something I wanted to spark as a conversation. We can be off the grid, and also be on the internet, and try out all of these different lifestyles at the same time.”

Out on September 6th, ‘Hole Erth’ seems to find Toro Y Moi dialling into the alt sounds of his youth, blending these with his deft electronic touch. The guests speak for themselves: BROCKHAMPTON founder Kevin Abstract appears on ‘Heaven’, while old friend Porches works on ‘Undercurrent’ – one of two guest features from Don Toliver.

New single ‘Tuesday’ is out now, a driving piece of guitar-laden grunge that is permeated by Toro YMoi’s questing digitalism. Of the song – and its attendant album – he comments…

I hope you enjoy this suburban anthem, growing up the often-controversial-line between mainstream and underground artists was so defined but now that line has become so blurred I can’t even tell what I like anymore… sometimes.

‘Tuesday’ is coupled to an India Sleem-directed music video shot across Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco, California; as a bonus – watch out for the vintage Manchester United top in the video.

Tune in now.
