Last month, IAN marked his triumphant return with the release of the indie-pop single “Peanut Butter & Tears.” Alongside the single came a visually striking music video that immerses viewers with a glimpse into “The Other Side”. The video has already amassed 3.5 million YouTube views in a month.
“Before MITO, there was Insanity,” shared IAN previously. “’The ‘Dear Insanity…’ EP serves as a prequel to the expansive MITO universe. Spotlighting Mr. Insanity, who first appeared in the MIITO short film, ‘Dear Insanity…’ follows IAN’s journey to and throughout the dreamlike realm known as ‘The Other Side.’ As he traverses through The Other Side, IAN slowly begins to lose his sanity bit by bit, thus turning into his new alter ego ‘Mr. Insanity’ at the story’s climax.”
Sharing more on his latest single “So I Danced”, IAN adds, “In a series of insane and deadly events, Insanity is met with the question of how he feels about all this to which he begins dancing, indicating he is clearly not in the right state of mind. This is also where Insanity first encounters MITO in a twist of events on The Other Side.”
DPR IAN’s previous studio album, ‘Moodswings In To Order,’ enjoyed immense global success where it debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, #6 on the World’s Albums chart, and #7 on Spotify’s Top Albums Debut Global and US charts respectively. The project has accumulated more than 50 million streams to date in the US alone solidifying IAN as one to watch and earning him coveted spots on prestigious festival lineups such as Coachella, Head in the Clouds NY and LA, Lollapalooza, and many more. The accompanying MIITO short film, a testament to IAN’s artistic brilliance, was also directed and edited by the multi-faceted artist himself. The captivating film came to life during a sold-out, whirlwind 4-month world tour that spanned North America, Latin America, the UK, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The tour was met with tremendous enthusiasm from fans across the globe, further cementing DPR IAN’s status as an international sensation. IAN’s Top 10 streaming markets in Southeast Asia include the Philippines 🇵🇭, Indonesia 🇮🇩, Malaysia 🇲🇾, and Thailand 🇹🇭.
