Dominic Fike’s sophomore album Sunburn has finally been released by Columbia Records/Sony Music Entertainment. He returns to his birthplace Florida for the album, studying the culture and settings in which he was reared that are distinctive to the Sunshine State. The outstanding tune, “Mona Lisa,” which Dom developed with longtime collaborator Kenny Beats and was also used in the box office smash Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, is included in the album’s release.
Also featured on Sunburn are “Frisky” and “Think Fast,” two tracks that have been teased over the past few months and have already become fan favorites online. The latter of those songs features contributions by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo on guitar and backing vocals — a full circle moment for Dom given Weezer’s influence on him and his history of covering the band’s “Say It Ain’t So” as part of a medley with his own song “Westcoast Collective” on his first North American tour.
Next week Dom will launch his North American Don’t Stare At The Sun tour. The tour marks his first live performances since his breakout set at this year’s Coachella, where “his talent jumped out every time he took the mic” according to Rolling Stone. Over the course of the tour, Dom will perform at iconic venues like New York’s Prospect Park, Los Angeles’ Greek Theater, and Chicago’s Huntington Bank Pavilion, making this his largest tour to date.
The album is available digitally as well as on standard CD and vinyl formats (the former with 12-panel folded insert poster and the latter with a 12-page insert booklet), an exclusive CD edition with 60-page photo book on glossy paper stock, as well as deluxe and color vinyl editions (the former of which is on black vinyl with a 24-page insert booklet and the latter of which comes on Florida orange vinyl with a 12-page insert booklet). Digital and CD formats are available for purchase now and vinyl is available for pre-order.
