Joe Keery drops 12 track debut solo album, 'Twenty Twenty', under the moniker Djo.
Stranger Things star Joe Keery has spent the summer introducing fans to his solo project, Djo. First, the actor and musician released "Roddy", his debut single as Djo. He then followed it up with "Chateau (Feel Alright)" and "Mortal Projections". Now Joe Keery has released a new album called Twenty Twenty and you can hear it everywhere.
The 27-year-old star dropped a 12 track album that sees him lean heavily into the dreamy psych rock he previewed with the release of his early singles. Joe wrote all the songs on Twenty Twenty and played guitar, drums, and bass for the release, in addition to singing on it.
Twenty Twenty's standouts include "BNBG", "Just Along for the Ride", "Ring", "Roddy" and "Chateau (Feel Alright)".
Fans of the actor will know that he previously released music with Chicago based band Post Animal–though he does not appear to be affiliated with the group any longer.
Joe joins his fellow musical Stranger Things stars Finn Wolfhard and Maya Hawke who have also maintained musical side projects. Finn plays in the band Calpurnia, and Maya Hawke has also dropped new music in the run up to an album release.
Joe has also announced that he will be playing live shows in Los Angeles as Djo to promote the release of his new music.

Meanwhile, Netflix have yet to confirm season 4 of Stranger Things (though we KNOW it's coming). We're guessing production will resume soon but, for now, it looks like Joe is pursuing his other interests before he has to get back to playing our fave, Steve Harrington.
