Press Release

When the first Superorganism music surfaced in 2017, the group’s in-your-face aesthetic — a post-everything mishmash of psychedelic indie pop and fizzy, funky electronica — quickly began to resonate with the likes of Frank Ocean, Vampire Weekend, Jehnny Beth, Gorillaz as well as finding them legions of fans across the world.

Today, Superorganism announce their eagerly awaited return with news of their second album; entitled World Wide Pop and due for release on July 15th, it is their first new music since 2018’s self-titled debut.

Superorganism have mutated and are now based around the core of Orono, Harry, Tucan, B and Soul but World Wide Pop also brings in an international set of collaborators including Stephen Malkmus, CHAI, Pi Ja Ma, Dylan Cartlidge as well as legendary musician and actor Gen Hoshino. Blasting back with thirteen tracks that strike a balance between artifice and earnestness, between sci-fi silliness and existential intensity, World Wide Pop is a showcase for Superorganism’s newly deepened understanding of each other’s interests and impulses, the kind of creative convergence you’d expect when online friends start spending time together IRL (their debut was completed before the whole band had ever been in the same room at the same time).

Alongside the album announcement, Superorganism are pleased to reveal the first cut from the record, “Teenager”. Featuring good friends and former tour mates Chai and Pi Ja Ma, “Teenager” celebrates holding onto the raw passion and emotion of those formative years and is a rejection of cynicism. Produced by Stuart Price (Madonna, The Killers), who Superorganism tapped to help them achieve the IMAX-sized sheen that their bedroom recordings have always aspired to. The resulting palette on “Teenager” and across the record melds millennium-era synth schmaltz with glitchy wild-eyed weirdness, a textural upgrade that never betrays Superorganism’s signature playfulness.

The joyous video for “Teenager” was directed by AEVA and features actor and comedian Brian Jordan Alvarez (Will and Grace) who is also known for his fervent dancing on YouTube. As fans of these videos, the band reached out to Alvarez to invite him into the immersive, technicolour and wild world of Superorganism and the outcome is not to be missed.
