The Alt in Our Stars: Robert DeLong

Alternative-dance onstage wizard Robert DeLong has some very eventful months ahead of him. His new album In the Cards is out Sept. 18 (via Glassnote) and on Sept. 14, he'll embark on a month of touring with Bleachers and Charli XCX. This week, stopped by Billboard's New York office for a chat with Alt In Our Stars host Chris Payne.

Robert described what the forthcoming album will sound like, but also dove into some not-so-serious talk: his earliest memories of the internet, how he's been watching a lot of Twin Peaks, what it's like to spend a day on the set of a late night talk show (in this case, Kimmel and Letterman) and why drones are taking over the world, but he's not stressing it.
