Ahead of his festival performances at both Head in the Clouds LA and Lollapalooza, mental magician DPR IAN is making his return with his mind-numbing new single, “Peanut Butter & Tears.”
Written and produced by DPR IAN himself, “Peanut Butter & Tears” is taken from his upcoming EP, Dear Insanity…, which is expected to release on October 6, which fans and new listeners can pre-order now.
Alongside the release of his new single, in typical DPR IAN fashion, the Korean-Australian artist also dropped a new visually stunning music video that begins to tell the story of his alter-ego MITO.
On the subject of “Peanut Butter & Tears,” as well as his upcoming EP, DPR IAN shares that the song “Portrays the fading playfulness of our youth, as we embark on a bittersweet journey into adulthood. But before MITO, there was Insanity.
The Dear Insanity… EP is the prequel story to MITO’s creator, “Mr. Insanity.” This EP follows MITO on his journey to and throughout the dreamlike realm known as “The Other Side.” As he traverses through “The Other Side,” MITO slowly begins to lose his sanity bit by bit, thus fully turning into the new alter ego, “Mr. Insanity,” at the story’s climax.“
