A month ago, Bo Burnham released an unexpected Netflix comedy special, Inside, where he explored the realities of living through quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic. Similarly as with Burnham’s past specials, Inside mixed in stand-up comedy with surrealist humor and plenty of musical vignettes, all written and directed by the comedian himself.
On Tuesday, Burnham declared that the songs of Inside would get their own album, out this Thursday, June 10th.
Although the official tracklist hasn’t been released at this point, the special includes songs, for example, “Welcome to the Internet,” “White Woman’s Instagram,” “Unpaid Intern,” “Jeffrey Bezos Pt. 1,” “Problematic,” “Turning 30,” and “FaceTime With My Mom.”
After first launching his parody profession on YouTube, and recording his debut comedy special at age 18 for Comedy Central, Burnham released his first Netflix special What. in 2013, trailed by Make Happy in 2016.
Burnham additionally wrote and directed the 2018 film Eighth Grade, which got a Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay. A year ago, he featured close by Carey Mulligan in the Oscar-winning film Promising Young Woman.
