Vampire Weekend bass player Chris Baio has been making his own tunes for a little while now under his surname Baio, and next month he will be releasing his debut solo album, The Names.

This week Baio has the album’s title-track to share with us, which is a gently smooth, emotive dance-pop tune with a nice New Order vibe.

The Names will be out on September 18 through Glassnote Records, and you can get in early and pre-order it now from iTunes.

Baio is also currently on the road doing a few shows in promotion of the new album. Sydney fans can catch him tomorrow night at GoodGod just before he jets off to Europe and then onto the USA.
