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. Upon announce just last month, long time Baio supporters such as Pitchfork, NME, DIY, Stereogum, Baeble excitedly covered the album news along with the release of the first single, PHILOSOPHY! which was deemed “"instant indie classic" by Wonderland Magazine and “a quirky indie funk treat that will get your hips moving and your shoulders shimmy-ing” by Acid Stag. “

PHILOSOPHY!” is a deceptively buoyant breakup song chronicling a terminal failure of communication. It is a reflection of an album whose themes of alienation, paranoia, and political will to power are belied by airy melodies and a crystalline pop sheen.

About Baio
“Writing Man of the World was my way of processing 2016, a year that began with the death of my favorite artist, David Bowie, and ended with the greatest political disruption of my adult life – all while I was a nomad, an American living in London, touring two continents, never fully of either place. It's partially about being trapped in my own head, obsessing about things it was too late to change, feeling afraid and guilty and alone. It’s also my attempt to document a certain sense of loss that felt both intensely personal and like part of a larger collective experience many were going through at once.”

Baio’s 2015 full-length solo debut, Glassnote Records’ 'The Names', amassed critical praise from the likes of Pitchfork, SPIN, Stereogum, The New York Times, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Paste and more. The album’s single, ‘Sister of Pearl,‘ debuted on NBC’s Late Night With Seth Meyers, was a hit on Alt Nation and Sirius XMU, and has gone on to be streamed nearly 10 million times on Spotify. Chris Baio is also the bass player of the Grammy-winning band Vampire Weekend.
