D&D "His new album, He Poos Clouds, will be released on Tomlab Records and marks a bold step forward in ambition and scope, using the Eight Classes of Magic from venerable role-playing game Dungeons and Dragons as a jumping off point.

While the writing of most albums begins with a series of abstract ideas, solidified slowly throughout the recording and mixing processes, Owen Pallett, making records as “Final Fantasy,” set out with a plan. More specifically, he began with a list. Before beginning work on He Poos Clouds, he put together the following guide in order to help make the album a fantasy-based reality:"

  1. The album will be a set of songs that attempt to modernize each of the eight D&D schools of magic.
  2. Every song will be written for string quartet and voice.
  3. Nobody who listens to it will ever again entertain thoughts of suicide
