Fast-rising Los Angeles based singer/songwriter Joey Dosik has just announced his debut album, 'Inside Voice,' due out on August 24 via Secretly Canadian. You can pre-order the album here.

To preview the album, Dosik has released a music video of the title track, directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada (Thundercat, Father John Misty). The video shows us a dapper Dosik introducing us to a romantic 50s style candlelight dinner of a courting couple when suddenly, in a surreal twist, various dishes on the dinner table start singing along! There's a specially confusingly romantic moment featuring a singing meatball, being courted by a clam freed from a chowder with a lovely falsetto as they spin together on a vinyl record. Check out the music video below.

As per a press release, ‘Inside Voice’ builds gradually into 70s-style soul, as Dosik’s remarkable vocal range hovers over a sparse arrangement.

It’s quiet but — in keeping with the song’s concept, which Dosik describes as “deep, sexual, but also kind of silly”— it’s also a thrilling, intimate moment -- something that's perfectly captured by the essence of the music video as well.

Dosik honed his craft as part of a burgeoning Los Angeles scene that reinvents classic popular music to thrive in the present tense.

The press release promises that with Inside Voice, which features a number of Dosik’s closest collaborators - including Moses Sumney, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Mocky, Coco O, Theo Katzman, and others - Dosik "delivers a level of depth rarely achieved in a debut, and the result is an instant classic by any standard."

It’s brimming with emotions that linger and hum.

'Inside Voice' follows Dosik’s acclaimed debut EP, 'Game Winner', re-released by Secretly Canadian earlier this year. Dosik made his late-night television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! the day of the EP’s release, performing both 'Running Away' and 'Game Winner'.

Dosik will also be hitting the road soon, playing select dates across North America this autumn as well as a support slot for Vulfpeck at the Brixton O2 Academy on Thursday, October 4.
