Comedian and writer for The Daily Show has a new album coming out. The album, Elusive, is described as a 33-track mixtape that is a mixture of both comedy and music.
The album “weaves the Chicago comedian’s shrewd and self-deprecating observations on the absurdities of modern dating and American decay with nine music tracks (most of which he co-wrote) that roam the same thematic terrain.” The album consists of two arcs. The first arc relates to dating and how to maintain a relationship during the pandemic. The second arc deals more with the political side of things, specifically relating to the world of COVID that we’re currently living in.
“I think it’s more creative and interesting to see what a song sounds like that’s about what the previous two comedy tracks are about,” Johnson says of incorporating music. “What’s being relayed in that pain, musically, that isn’t in the stand-up?”
Elusive comes out on June 11th.
