Baio unveils new singles 'Dead Hand Control' and 'Take It From Me'

With his highly-anticipated new album set to drop later this month, Baio has now returned to deliver a pair of new cuts lifted from his forthcoming new full-length.

The new singles 'Dead Hand Control' and 'Take It From Me' follow on from the previously shared tracks 'Endless Me, Endlessly' and 'What Do You Say When I’m Not There?' in previewing his new LP, also called 'Dead Hand Control', which is out on the 29th January via Glassnote Records.

Speaking about the record's title-track, he said, "'Dead Hand Control' is a song about anxiety and the limits of control. I was thinking a lot about how, as a musician, I have control over what a recording is, but that once I put a song out into the world, I no longer control its life. That’s essentially what the chorus line is saying - “Dead Hand Control / You can take my life but you will never take my soul” - you can do whatever you want to me, but the things I’ve made will (hopefully in some way) outlast me. I’d like to give a special shoutout to Jazz Ambassador Robby Sinclair for his absolutely heroic improvised drumming on the back half of the song. I filmed the video on my phone at home during Los Angeles’ second stay-at-home order.”

While adding about 'Take It From Me', “‘Take It from Me’ is an attempt at writing my version of a children’s song or a standard. Like many songs on Dead Hand Control, it is about being there for the people in your life to the fullest extent you can. It’s a song based around a very simple idea: you can take whatever you want in the world, so long as you take it from me."
