Detroit native Kaio. has been in his bag with singles this year. July brought fans of the rising artist two new singles titled “Dog of the year” and “a watery grave”, the latter receiving a video released to Kaio’s youtube this month. Doubling down on this dog persona, Kaio. announced his new album Dog of the Year on twitter to be released on all platforms August 12th. The seven song album consists of tracks produced by fellow Detroit creative Family Man Xay. Kaio taps into his inner dog in verses on “Never Forget” and “Heal”, while also adding in slow earthy jams sounds on “family sticks together”. Kaio really came through on this short project, preparing it in around 3 weeks and rolling out with vlogs to follow. Check out the album below and watch Kaio and Xay’s series Dog Days documenting their work on the album.
