NY born and raised Zuli Jr. has announced his new studio album. Titled Stop It God., the 12-track LP will be released May 14th via Nurtured Ideas.
Zuli explained the concept behind the album:
I tied the album concept into everyday technology. Social media reinforces the narrative of constant reflection and being your best self all the time. We get lost in this idea—and it affects our confidence. The songs are written as a mirror image of this. A reflection on the creative being within us all, and the modern world that leads us to believe we are at the center of it. The world building on the album was the last key. It pays homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey and Black Mirror. At the same time, I found inspiration for Daisy from The Great Gatsby. Gatsby changed everything about himself for Daisy, but in the end, it was all for naught.

Zuli Jr. has also introduced released track two “How to Feel” along with its accompanying music video. Directed by Zuli himself, the video introduces viewers to Daisy and the virtual world around which the album revolves.
“This album was a true labor of love, yet ‘How to Feel’ flowed out of me in a single afternoon,” he shared. “A song about examining the ego from the outside looking in and how that affects the people around you. This is easily one of my favorite songs on the record and feels like the perfect transition from one chapter to the next.”
