Djo Announces New Album “Decide”, Shares New Song “Change”
- American actor Joe Keery's solo project, Djo announced his sophomore album “Decide” would be released on September 16, 2022.
It is his first album in three years. The album is “a sort of aural history of Keery's late 20s,” according to a press release. “It features reflections on growth, relationships, and navigating it all in a world filled with technology at its center. It's [Djo's] sonic ambitions, however, that take these introspections and melt them into a warped reality, with each layered synth pulling the listener's emotional strings.”
From the album, he released a '70s-inspired single called “Change”.
It was written by Joe Keery and co-produced by Adam Thein.
The song received its first play during BBC Radio 1's Future Artists with Jack Saunders.
Joe Keery told Jack Saunders about the sound of the song, “I mean, the synthesis of the track is just kind of laying sort of a fun and odd bass riff over some chords. And if you kind of take those two things and kind of break them up, they sort of sound different on their own. So it's really those two things together. We're kind of at the beginning of the track and then it just sort of spilled out from there, I guess.”
- He said of the song, “I mean, I think a lot of the songs on the upcoming record are about getting older and realizing that it's okay to change and that making a decision is better than just waiting around for things to happen to you.”
He continued, “Just life I think. I mean, I think when you kind of are approaching the end of your 20s I think a lot of people have some sort of existential sort of crisis, but just things maybe mean a little bit more than they did at the beginning of your 20s where you feel that you can make mistakes and stuff like that. So it's definitely something that the gravity I guess the gravity of getting older is a little bit more real. So pretty key for the track, I guess.”
