Press Release

Daryl Hall will release his sixth solo album, “D,” on Virgin Music on June 21, co-produced by one-time Eurythmics member and fellow Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dave Stewart, who co-wrote seven of the nine new original songs with Hall penning the other two on his own.

The first single from the album, “Can’t Say No To You” can be listened to here, alongside the official music video here.

“D” marks Hall’s sixth solo album, and first since 2011’s “Laughing Down Crying” on Verve Records. In 2022, Hall released “BeforeAfter,” featuring a 30-song compilation of all his solo work, from 1980’s Robert Fripp-produced “Sacred Songs” through 1986’s “Three Hearts in the Happy Ending Machine,” 1993’s “Soul Alone,” 1996’s “Can’t Stop Dreaming” and “Laughing Down Crying.”

“This album is about getting to my core,” Hall said. “Break it down to the real thing, have fun, tropical reverie. And, rekindle a musical relationship with a great friend. … Call me ‘D.’ ”

The new album was recorded and mixed at Stardust Studios in Harbour Island, Bahamas. The first single from the album, “Can’t Say No to You,” co-written by Hall and Stewart, will be released May 3, when preorders for the full-length album will start, available on Hall's official merch store and Target.com. There will also be exclusive vinyl variants, available in silver at independent record stores nationwide, turquoise at Barnes & Noble, and more!

Other songs include “The Whole World’s Better,” “Too Much Information,” “Rainbow Over the Graveyard,” “Not the Way I Thought It Was,” “Walking in Between Raindrops” and “Why You Want to Do That to My Head,” along with a pair of brand-new Hall solo tracks: “Rather Be a Fool” and “Break It Down to the Real Thing.” The album is now available to presave on all platforms here.

Hall’s summer tour with Costello will begin June 2 at the McMenamins Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon, and run through July 25 at Wolf Trap Filene Center in Vienna, Virginia. Local shows include:

√ July 4 – Budweiser Stage – Toronto

√ July 20 – Bethel Woods Center for the Arts – Bethel
