[VIDEO] Diamonds Rings Unveils Teaser for New Single "I'm Just Me"
After spending lots of time in beautiful Montreal to record his much-anticipated new album, Diamond Rings will return to the North American pop scene on June 26 when Astralwerks/EMI will release his brand-new single, "I'm Just Me." The blazing new track is a proper tastemaker for his new LP that was co-produced by none other than GRAMMY-nominated Damian Taylor (Bjork, The Killers, Prodigy, UNKLE, Robyn) who has helped Diamond Rings (aka John O) to further evolve his sound.
Diamond Rings' sophomore effort is the follow up to 2010's critically-acclaimed "Special Affections" that introduced pop fans to his irreverent and highly imaginative blend of pop, electro and indie - a sound as a unique and multi-faceted as John O himself. Praise for the album was topped off with head-turning performances at SXSW and CMJ as well as international tours with pop princess Robyn and Junior Boys.
A press release re-introduces John O: "Diamond Rings is the solo-project of Toronto-based artist and musician John O who burst onto the scene with an inventive home recorded video for his debut single All Yr Songs.' Featuring amateur green screen camera trickery, over the top choreography, and daring androgynous outfits and makeup, the video received international praise from both music nerds and fashionistas alike."
