Wye Oak's Andy Stack announces debut solo album 'Release The Dogs'

With Wye Oak's 2018 LP 'The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs' one of the most loved releases of last year, the band's Andy Stack has now announced his plans for a new solo album, arriving in the coming months.

Working under the name Joyero, the frontman's debut offering 'Release The Dogs' will include the previously shared single 'Salt Mine', as well as the newly unveiled track 'Dogs', and is set to be released on the 23rd August via Merge Records.

Speaking about the new video for his latest cut, he said, "I filmed this in the back of Wye Oak’s tour van in Durham, NC, as summer temperatures crept toward triple digits, so these dogs had no problem showing me their panting, slobbery tongues and beautiful white teeth. It’s a song about longing and control, love and danger, cages we are placed into and cages in which we choose to stay. I felt at home in this box, close cuddling with dogs and hens and tarantulas, delusional from the heat and happy to stay a little longer than was probably advisable."
