Listen to ‘Stranger Things’ Star Joe Keery’s Awesome New Single, ‘Change’ (Audio)

Keery — Djo to fans — dropped his last album in 2019

After a three-year hiatus, multi-talented musician Djo — you might know him better as “Stranger Things” star Joe Keery — is back with a new single. Now, we don’t want to overstate things, but the track, called “Change,” is a banger and you can see (or hear) for yourself right now.

The track is heavily electronic, slick and processed yet still exhibits warm, full sounds. For lack of a better way to put it, it’s like Gigamesh produced by Chaz Jankel, which is to say, it sounds f—ing awesome, and really, why are you even reading this? Stop and listen instead, especially when you get to the drop near the end that sees a soft piano interlude turn into a driving climax you’ll want to loop for another 10 minutes. Look, we love it, OK?

Here, listen:

“Change” is the first single off Djo’s upcoming album “Decide,” a synth-heavy reflection on Keery’s late 20s and the growth, relationships and technology defining it. Created with musician and engineer Adam Thein during the lockdown says of the the pandemic — final recording took places at the Sound Factory in Los Angeles — “Decide” comes out Sep. 16.

Ahead of that, he’ll be testing the sounds out with a string of tour dates this summer, making appearances at Lollapalooza, Sea Hear Now and Austin City Limits Festival. We’ve listed those dates below; and, if you’re so inclined, hit play on the track again like a good citizen. There you go.
