Joyero is the solo project of Andy Stack of Wye Oak. He is releasing his debut album as Joyero, Release the Dogs, on August 23 via Merge. Now he has shared another song from the album, “Steepest Stairs,” via a self-directed video for the track. Watch it below, followed by Joyero’s upcoming tour dates.

The “Steepest Stairs” video was filmed in west Texas and features Stack running down a deserted road and falling against a white background. Stack had this to say about “Steepest Stairs” in a press release: “It’s a song about feeling like an outsider, and finding some peace in that.”

Release the Dog includes “Salt Mine,” a song shared back in March. When the album was announced, Stack shared another song from it, “Dogs,” via a video for the track (it was one of our Songs of the Week).

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).
