Toro y Moi (aka Chaz Bear) has announced a new album, Hole Erth, and shared its first single, “Tuesday,” via a music video. Hole Erth features several notable guests, including Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service, and is due out September 6 via Dead Oceans. Check out India Sleem-directed “Tuesday” video below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover artwork.

Hole Erth follows Toro y Moi’s 2022 album, Mahal. It’s his eighth studio album. A press release says the album puts “anthemic pop-punk next to autotuned, melancholic rap.”

Bear had this to say about the new single and album in the press release: “I hope you enjoy this suburban anthem, growing up, the often-controversial-line between mainstream and underground artists was so defined but now that line has become so blurred I can’t even tell what I like anymore…sometimes.”

The album’s title is inspired by Stewart Brand’s DIY magazine, Whole Earth Catalog, published regularly from 1968 to 1971, and more sporadically until 1998.

“Things have gone in a more gorp-y direction,” Bear explains. “Humans are tapping into this more tribal, earthier aesthetic. The Whole Earth Catalog is this encyclopedic, self-sustaining guide. With the album title alone, that’s something I wanted to spark as a conversation. We can be off the grid, and also be on the internet, and try out all of these different lifestyles at the same time.”
