Joyero is the solo project of Andy Stack of Wye Oak. Now he has announced his debut album as Joyero, Release the Dogs, and shared a video for a new song from it, "Dogs." Release the Dogs is due out August 23 via Merge. Watch the "Dogs" video below, followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as Joyero's upcoming tour dates. The album includes "Salt Mine," a song shared back in March (listen to that below again).

Stack had this to say about the "Dogs" video in a press release: "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."

Wye Oak (Stack and Jenn Wasner) released a new album, The Louder I Call, the Faster It Runs, back in April 2018 via Merge. (It was our Album of the Week and one of our Top 100 Albums of 2018.) In February they shared a brand new song, "Evergreen," via the Adult Swim Singles series (it was one of our Songs of the Week).

Wye Oak are performing at Merge's 30th anniversary festival in July.
