    Well, Baio wasted no time. Today, the Vampire Weekend member released his new single "PHILOSOPHY!", a break up song that exemplifies Baio's signature quirky style. He also announced the follow up to 2015's The Names. The sophomore album, co-produced by Baio and John Foyle, is entitled Man of the World and is set for release on June 30th via Glassnote Records. In a statement, Baio 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."
