Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend unveils new solo album details

Baio has revealed the music video for "PHILOSOPHY!", the first single from his forthcoming sophomore solo album, ‘Man of the World’ (June 30th).

Recently shot in New York City, the video was directed and produced by frequent collaborator, Dan Navetta. Combining playfulness and sophistication, the video features Baio’s signature dance moves and white suit, musical skeletons, spinning globes and close up frames inducing feelings of optimism in a frenetic and uncertain world.


This past Friday Baio also released a second track from the album titled, "DANGEROUE ANAMAL". Listen to it here.

Recorded in Brixton, London over the course of the last year ‘Man of the World’ was mixed by Bruce Lampcov (Bryan Ferry, The The) and co-produced by Chris Baio and John Foyle. 

A series of summer tour dates will find him playing new music from ‘Man of the World’ as well as key tracks from his first album ‘The Names.'
