Dan Miraldi Releases New Album 'Radio Friendly Darling'
Dan Miraldi continues to be the definition of prolific. In his solo career alone, the New York-based and Cleveland-born singer and songwriter has released four full-length albums and eight EPs. 2022 finds him unveiling his fifth full-length, affectionately titled, Radio Friendly Darling. Its first single, “Room For 2,” arrived in April, but now the full album is available on streaming sites.
The album showcases Miraldi’s knack for writing great melodies and arranging joyful harmonies. He explains: “We have all been through a lot these last few years. I just wanted to make something joyful. With this album there are some tender moments of reflection, but mainly I wanted to rock – big guitars, big harmonies. Let’s do this!"

New Single "Dance the Apocalypse" Out June 4th
June 4, Dan Miraldi is releasing a new single, “Dance the Apocalypse.” It is the first track arriving from the upcoming punk-infused EP, 15 Minutes of Fury. This new record announces a sonic changeup from last year’s twin folk releases, Mood Music for Introverts and More Mood Music. “Last fall, I decided to put a pin in the acoustic stuff. Anxiety was high and I needed loud guitars and to scream in order to cut some of the tension,” the singer explains. He assembled a killer socially-distanced backing band made up of North Carolina-based ringers Jeremy Radio on bass and Dominic Geralds on drums and Cleveland-area favorite Ray Flanagan on lead guitar. Miraldi continues: “I told Ray the vibe I wanted from his guitar. It’s the end of the world. There’s a giant asteroid coming and the sky is on fire. We are onstage playing to a mosh pit full of sweaty people who just want to dance like fiends before everything explodes into oblivion.”
15 Minutes of Fury will be released late July 2021. In the meantime, “Dance the Apocalypse” will be available on digital service platforms this Friday, June 4.
