ericdoa has been everywhere – on tour with The Kid LAROI, a viral track on season 2 of Euphoria (“sad4whattt”) and a spot on the VALORANT soundtrack. The enigmatic artist can effortlessly toggle between hyperpop, trap and emo-rap styles – while also intermingling the three to curate his unique, refreshing sound. On his new album DOA, ericdoa does just that, infusing the 10-song project with his introspective and intentional artistry.

DOA is something that came together from me having fun,” he explained in a statement. “I was over-encumbered with my thoughts and took myself in circles during my process of creation. I had a realization after a while and let myself enjoy what I was actually doing, making sure that I wasn’t dissecting every last detail under a perfectionist spell. No intentions of making an ALBUM, just making music that I like and makes me happy.”

Even down to the cover art, DOA is highly intentional, with the album’s artwork inspired by a one-off interaction ericdoa had with a woman selling clothing in Bushwick, Brooklyn. “To Eric, [Jeni] embodied the selfless maternal spirit that the Latin women he grew up with carried and still carry to this day. The 10-track project serves as a sonic representation of the heartfelt impact of genuine connections and the enduring spirit of love beyond familial ties,” an official statement noted.

ericdoa will embark upon a headlining tour dubbed DEAD ON ARRIVAL in support of the album, which kicks off later this month. Find the dates below.
