Joe Wong Releases 'Nite Creatures (Deluxe)' Out Today!


Featuring Mary Lattimore and Mary Timony.

Joe Wong released Nite Creatures (Deluxe) today, February 5th via Decca Records. Wong's debut album Nite Creatures was originally released last fall and features luxurious melodies accompanying his deeply personal lyrics, written in the years between his father suffering a stroke in 2010 and his death in 2019.

The album is a collection of 10 baroque, ruminative, gently psychedelic songs that explores the intersection of melancholy and joyful surrender and the deluxe features instrumental versions of all ten of the tracks, shining a light on the gorgeous instrumentation throughout the album.
