Album artwork for The Names by Baio

Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio makes dance music under the name Baio. Baio releases his first full-length album, 'The Names' via Glassnote Records. The record takes it title from Don Delillo's 1982 novel. 'The Names', produced by Baio, explores ideas of space - of belonging, identity and finding a place in the world. Some of this was occasioned by his own geographical shift - having recently moved to London, he found himself struck by his new city's expanse of sky, green space, and globalness - elements that infuse the record's sound. Across its nine tracks, Baio wanted to return, in part, to the electronic music he'd enjoyed while DJing at college, but also to investigate his own lyrical and vocal style to create something quite new and not easily categorized.
