DPR Ian Drops Debut Full-Length Album 'Moodswings in to Order'

Korean-Australian alternative recording artist DPR IAN – the multifaceted musician, director, and videographer of the groundbreaking independent multimedia label collective Dream Perfect Regime (DPR) alongside DPR LIVE, CREAM, and REM – today releases his highly anticipated, long-awaited debut full-length album, 'Moodswings In To Order'. 

The genre-bending 12-song LP is a continuation of the titular character "Mito" first featured on IAN’s 2021 debut EP 'Moodswings In This Order', which reframed mental health struggles as superpowers and detailed IAN’s own inner battles with his bipolar disorder. Written and produced by IAN and DPR CREAM with creative direction by DPR REM, the multi-genre LP 'Moodswings In To Order' features elements of pop, rock, R&B, and electronic music and debuts today alongside an accompanying striking short film written, directed, and edited by IAN. 

Alongside label mate DPR LIVE, IAN is gearing up to hit the road for the DPR Regime World Tour kicking off on September 8, 2022 in Charlotte, NC and heading to 19 other North American cities  — including Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto, New York, and Atlanta — before embarking later this year to South America, Europe, and the UK with additional dates for Australia, New Zealand, and Asia to be announced soon.

DPR IAN makes music you can see and feel, constructing his own audiovisual language to communicate things for which there are no words. With his debut studio album, 'Moodswings In To Order', released alongside a short film he directed and edited, the Los Angeles-based visual artist blurs the lines of R&B, jazz, rock, and electronica to convey an atmospheric exploration of self-reflection and spirituality, as seen through the eyes of his misunderstood alter ego MITO.

Christian Yu began composing and creating under the alias DPR IAN in late 2015 as one of the founding members of creative collective DPR (Dream Perfect Regime) in Seoul, South Korea. The independent label creates, directs, produces, and edits all types of multimedia projects for its diverse roster of talent, with DPR IAN serving as its chief director and editor. In addition to in-house direction and cinematography, he's helmed music videos for some of his most prolific peers, from Mino’s "Body" to Bobby’s "HOLUP!" to Taeyang’s "Wake Me Up".
