Published Oct 29, 2019Not long after delivering his Outer Peace album this past January, Toro y Moi shared surprise mixtape Soul Trash as a free download via WeTransfer. Now, the project has received an official release on streaming services.
The 12-track release can now be heard in the players below and also arrives alongside a new short film. The half-hour piece was directed by Laneya Billingsley.
"Chaz Bear and I sought to create a vibrating immersive piece that mirrored the soft melancholic bounciness of the mixtape, making sure every delicate part was exactly how we envisioned," Billingsley recalled in a statement. "We wanted the video to feel like a sort of tour through internal rooms led by Chaz our tour guide, or soul guide if you will. With a handheld controller, grinning from ear to ear, Chaz navigates the turbulent internal atmosphere searching for each intangible floaty room buried within, each holding a different sound, feeling and sublime visual experience."
Soul Trash arrives ahead of Toro y Moi's North American tour, which kicks off tomorrow (October 30) in Minneapolis. Next week, he'll play Toronto's Danforth Music Hall and Montreal's Corona Theatre. See his dates below.
