If you've ever noticed a strong visual element in Toro y Moi's work, you're not mistaken: he's a graphic designer by education and trade: "Graphic design is actually very prevalent in my everyday work schedule. I’m starting to do a bit more design stuff with a small crew of designers here in the Bay [Area]. Just some small projects like posters and stuff. But I’m definitely still looking to pursue graphic design more extensively in the future though." https://bit.ly/30CiLgC
"Freelance" is intended to be a comment on "disposable culture" and "how it affects creativity," Chaz Bear of Toro Y Moi said in a statement. "While listening, you might pay attention or ignore, either way that's OK, this is music for a creative mind."
