toro y moi ordinary pleasure outer peace

Following the announcement of his forthcoming Outer Peace album, Toro y Moi has shared another song from the project called “Ordinary Pleasure.” The playful track highlights Chaz Bear’s most playful sound from the album yet with the dominance of a funky bassline and bongo drum patterns.

“This record is a response to how disposable culture has become and how it affects creativity,” he said in a press release. “While listening, you might pay attention or ignore — either way that’s ok, this is music for a creative mind.”

Outer Peace follows his 2017 album Boo Boo and further explores Toro Y Moi’s musical talents by incorporating contemporary hip-hop, funk, and Eurodance elements into a dynamic soundscape. The album is slated to drop on January 18 via Carpark Records shortly after his headlining tour kicks off in Oakland. Toro Y Moi will also be launcing a pop-up at Family Affair Gallery in San Francisco in collaboration with O.P. Mart and Family Affair from December 7 to January 18.
