The alternative trio, BLACKSTARKIDSTy, Deiondre, and The Babe Gabe—has unveiled their “JUNO” single and music video, the lead offering from their upcoming debut album, Puppies Forever, which drops this fall via Dirty Hit. The new video was directed by the band with the Director of Photography spot going to Manny of alt-rap collective AG Club.

Commenting on the single, the group note, “‘JUNO’ is a really honest reflection of how we were feeling at the time of working on the album, which is why we wanted to lead with it. In context of the album, it’s one of the more personal and reflective moments.”
