Chaz Bear's post-everything pop project Toro Y Moi has returned. "Freelance," his first new song since last year's Boo Boo LP, is the first single from Toro y Moi's now-confirmed sixth album, Outer Peace, due out January 18, 2019.

"This record is a response to how disposable culture has become and how it affects creativity," Bear said in a press release. "While listening, you might pay attention or ignore—either way that's ok, this is music for a creative mind."

"Freelance" itself is a squelchy pop song smothered with Auto-Tune and (hell yeah) a little panflute. It's all very late-90s, post-disco revival, right down to the dismembered vocals and retro video. Watch that at the top of the page.
