The quirky, digi-rave style track bubbles over with the kind of effervescent, child-like wonder you’d experience while casing the streets of Tokyo or while drifting through a party you didn’t know was a costume party until you got there, even though Sharon sent you the e-vite like a million times. Upbeat cymbal crashes, punchy synths and shining chime cascades that sound like stars sparkling solidify the song’s joyous intentions.
As Mark Redito told FADER, “This year has seen so many personal highs as well as lows. “So Many Things To Tell You” was conceived during a time when I was dealing with confusion and chaos in my personal life, as well as frustration, writer’s block and self-doubt. My intention was to translate these emotions into music with the hope of making sense of things happening around me. The way i wrote the song also involves different sections with different dynamics in an effort to translate internal mess into sound. I hope this song brings some sort of clarity to people undergoing confusing phases in their lives, like it did with mine.”

In addition to the single, we’ll also be releasing three remixes from music’s cheeriest-sounding new producers, Henrik the Artist, JSTJR and Luca Lush in the coming weeks. The O.G. single itself is available for preorder on iTunes now, and will be available for download on November 13.
In the meantime, Mark will be on tour through New Mexico and Texas, and will play his hometown Los Angeles on the eve of the EP release. Afterwards, the tour will run through Carrboro, NC, Atlanta and Florida.
