WHY? Announce Visual Album, Share Three More New Songs

At the end of last month, WHY? released three new tracks in the form of a music video dubbed I: I may come out a broken yolk, I may come out on saddle, which was directed by Miles Joris-Peyrafitte and stars Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany. Today, Yoni Wolf is revealing that it’s just one section of a new visual album called AOKOHIO, which will be out in August.

He’s also sharing the second part of the visual, II. I’ve been carving my elbows, I might just take flight,, which features another three new songs. The songs are “Reason” (which features Lala Lala, who also collaborated with Why? on a different track earlier this year), “Deleterio Motilis,” and “Stained Glass Slipper.”
