It took a while for Andy Shauf to follow up his 2016 breakthrough album, The Party, but now that he’s gotten going, he’s become incredibly prolific in the last few years. Between his solo work and his side project Foxwarren, Shauf is now set to release his fifth album in under five years in the newly-announced Norm.

Due out on February 10th, 2023, Norm will see Shauf embarking again on the character-specific narratives that he does so well. But unlike the many distinct personalities of The Party and the Judy character that Shauf painted in subsequent releases, Norm looks to follow a far less linear path. “The character of Norm is introduced in a really nice way,” Shauf said in a statement. “But the closer you pay attention to the record, the more you’re going to realize that it’s sinister.”

While Shauf produced and plays every instrument on the album, he’s brought in Outkast, Tyler The Creator and Janelle Monáe engineer Neal Pogue to help craft the album’s slightly synthier sound. On lead single “Wasted On You,” we hear a palpable lean towards jazzy synths rather than the gentle folk and soft-rock acoustics of Shauf’s past work. But it’s very much a noticeable part of Shauf’s sonic universe.
