LISTEN: Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio Shares Upbeat “Sister of Pearl” from Upcoming Debut LP
The new track follows last month's "Brainwash yyrr Face"
Last month, Chris Baio gave us a preview of his upcoming debut solo album (as Baio) The Names with the opening track “Brainwash yyrr Face.” Today, the Vampire Weekend bassist shared “Sister of Pearl”—an upbeat, piano-laden pop track with slurred vocals and flamenco-tinged guitar.
About the new track Baio said, “With ‘Sister of Pearl’ I wanted to write a Bowie & Ferry-referencing throwback pop song with a simple, straight-forward lyrical message: be who you want to be.”
Baio’s self-produced The Names comes out September 18 on Glassnote.
