June 07, 2017 -- Dan Croll has premiered his video directed by Greg Barnes (Nathaniel Ratecliff and The Night Sweats, The Beach, Haus) today for "Bad Boy" on DIY Mag - PRESS HERE to watch. The new single, which is the first American release from his sophomore album Emerging Adulthood, is a pop triumph, delving into Croll's speckled-diversity as a songwriter, combining twinges of old-fashioned jazz and vintage-rock instrumentations with the purest moments of modern pop structures.

 

Following his 2014 critically-lauded debut album Sweet Disarray, the release of "Bad Boy" announces the reappearance of Croll in the States. The track joins three previously available instant downloads for the pre-orders for Emerging Adulthood, including space-aged, lounge-pop jam "Away From Today," euphorically-atmospheric song  "Swim," and "One of Us," which Noisey described as "surf rock Weezer-meets-Fountains of Wayne." All four tracks, which will appear on Emerging Adulthood, were produced by Grammy-winning Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Cee-Lo Green, Matt & Kim) in Atlanta's Milk Money Studios, Emerging Adulthood is set for release on July 21, 2017 via Kobalt Music Group and Communion Records.

 

"Bad Boy" will also introduce the "Dial Dan" campaign in The States. In an interview will Billboard, Croll explained that he wrote "Bad Boy" "about what seemed to be a common phase of teenage life where either the girls wanted the stereotypical bad boy, or the guys tried to become the stereotypical bad boy, and how at the end of the day it all came down to a lack in confidence and usually ended in tears." The hotline will allow fans to connect directly with Croll, by calling, texting and/or leaving voicemails about their own personal experiences with the theme of the song. The "Bad Boy" Hotline will be open from Thursday, June 8 to Thursday, June 15 and can be reached by dialing +44 747 653 2825. Previous examples can be found here.

 

In support of Emerging Adulthood, Croll will embark on a month-long North American tour, beginning September 7 at Warsaw in New York and wrapping in California on September 24th. Dates in full can be found below. Tickets are on sale now on Dancroll.com.

 

Since releasing Sweet Disarray in 2014, Croll hit #3 on the Billboard Alternative New Artists, gathering 69 million streams on Spotify (including 26 million streams for his breakaway hit "From Nowhere") and made his television debut playing "From Nowhere" on Jimmy Kimmel.
