Toro Y Moi has announced a new studio album. Boo Boo is out July 7 via Carpark. In a personal statement, Chaz Bear (who has officially changed his name from Chaz Bundick) explains that Travis Scott, Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, and Oneohtrix Point Never were among the artists who influenced him during the record’s creation. “I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof,” he writes. The announcement comes with a video for the album’s first single, “Girl Like You.” Check out the video and Boo Boo tracklist below.
Chaz Bear’s last Toro Y Moi studio album, What For?, was released in 2015. Since then, he’s released a free mixtape called Samantha and a live album/film, Live from Trona. Earlier this year, he and the Mattson 2 released the colllaborative LP Star Stuff.
