Detroit pop-rock dup Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. have released a new single, “Don’t Tell Me,” two weeks after the release of the Speed of Things album.

According to DEJJ's Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott, “Before we even knew we were going to make a second album we began playing this song live almost two years ago and have been dodging questions after shows about when it was going to be made available ever since."

Paste recently championed DEJJ's lead single, "If You Didn't See Me, Then You Weren't On The Dancefloor)" as one of the "Best Songs of Summer" alongside the likes of Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake, Vampire Weekend, and more. Teen Vogue just called out the album as one of "The Most Exciting Albums Coming Out This Fall" raving ‘Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. makes straightforward, infectious indie-pop that you'll listen to again and again.’”
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. have linked up with label-mates Atlas Genius for the "Ones To Watch Tour" this fall, which just launched this week. It includes two nights in NYC on October 10th and 11th at Irving Plaza, The Wiltern in LA November 6th and The Fillmore in SF November 7th. A full list of dates is below.”
