Toro y Moi's New Album Influenced by Daft Punk, Frank Ocean & Oneohtrix Point Never
'Boo Boo' drops July 7.
Chaz Bear, aka Toro y Moi, will make his solo return for the first time in two years with the release of his new album, Boo Boo.
Along with the album announcement, Bear also revealed some of his most recent influences, which include Daft Punk, Frank Ocean, and Oneohtrix Point Never. Other influences include Travis Scott, Kashif and Gigi Masin.
"By the time I felt ready to begin working on a new record, I knew that this idea of space within music would be something that propelled my new work forward," he wrote. "I recognized that the common thread between these artists was their attention to a feeling of space, or lack thereof. I decided that I wanted to make a Pop record with these ideas in mind. That idea for a record is what eventually became Boo Boo."
Boo Boo will be available for digital download at 7 p.m. Eastern on July 6. The album officially drops on July 7.
