    Toro y Moi’s Chaz Bear will return on April 29th will his new album, MAHAL. The 13-track LP marks the seventh Toro y Moi album to date, and his first release through Dead Oceans. As a preview, Chaz Bear has shared two singles, “Postman” and “Magazine.”

    The follow-up to 2019’s Outer Peace, MAHAL was mostly completed last year in Chaz Bear’s Oakland studio with the assistance of Sofie Royer, Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s Ruban Neilson, Neon Indian’s Alan Palomo, The Mattson 2, and more.

    “I wanted to make a record that featured more musicians on it than any other record of mine,” Chaz Bear explained in a statement. “To have them live on that record feels grounded, bringing a communal perspective to the table.”

Meanwhile, the video for “Magazine,” directed by Arlington Lowell, captures Chaz Bear in a photo studio with Salami Rose Joe Louis, who provides vocals on the track. Watch both clips below.
