Joe Wong has recently released two new singles, “Minor” and “Nuclear Rainbow.”  “Minor” is at times pensive and acts as a lead up to the more expansive strut of “Nuclear Rainbow.”  

“Minor” / “Nuclear Rainbow” follows Wong’s debut single, “ Dreams Wash Away , ” which is featured in the finale of the widely-praised Netflix original series from Adventure Time creator Pendleton Ward and comedian Duncan Trussell , The Midnight Gospel . The video for “Dreams Wash Away” was produced by the Emmy award-winning animation studio Titmouse and features re-contextualized elements from the show including characters and backgrounds combined in new ways. Watch the “Dreams Wash Away” video HERE . 

Nite Creatures features luxurious melodies accompanying Wong’s deeply personal lyrics. The album was written in the years between his father suffering a stroke in 2010 and his death in 2019. The result is an album that – in the cinematic detail of one of Wong’s film scores – explores the intersection of melancholy and joyful surrender. 

Most of the songs on Nite Creatures feature a core ensemble: Wong on vocals, drums, bass, guitar and keyboards; Timony on lead guitar and backing vocals; and harpist Mary Lattimore , who recently garnered an avalanche of critical acclaim for the spectral minimalism of her 2018 solo album, Hundreds of Days . The basic tracks were recorded at the secluded Gatos Trail Recording Studio in Joshua Tree, California and the album was mixed by famed, depth-scouring Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann .  

LP pre-orders of Nite Creatures can be purchased via joewong.bigcartel.com and all profits from LP sales through July 2020 will be donated to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund .
