Man of the World
Two years on from releasing his debut solo effort The Names, Vampire Weekend man Chris Baio releases his second record Man Of The World via Glassnote. It’s been recorded in Brixton and was co-produced by Baio himself alongside John Foyle. Speaking of the album, Chris said: “Writing ‘Man of the World’ was my way of processing 2016, a year that began with the death of my favorite artist, David Bowie, and ended with the greatest political disruption of my adult life – all while I was a nomad, an American living in London, touring two continents, never fully of either place. It’s partially about being trapped in my own head, obsessing about things it was too late to change, feeling afraid and guilty and alone. It’s also my attempt to document a certain sense of loss that felt both intensely personal and like part of a larger collective experience many were going through at once.”.
