The album's first single is the intoxicatingly downtempo, R&B-influenced "Growth/Decay," which Paoro co-wrote with Sterling Fox (who has previously worked with Lana Del Rey, among others). The groove-laced, gospel-inspired track ruminates on the notion that change fuels all life, with the chorus putting out the call to "cycle to the light or fade away."
For After, Paoro worked with producers Sean Carey (drummer / supporting vocalist for Bon Iver) and BJ Burton (The Tallest Man on Earth, Sylvan Esso, and others) to even further deepen her musical repertoire, creating a mesmerizing hybrid of R&B, synthpop, and indie-leaning electro rooted in an earthy minimalism, drawing from influences ranging from Carole King to Portishead, Aretha Franklin and beyond. The album was recorded at April Base, a Wisconsin ranch house that Vernon had converted into a studio. "I'm used to just working with a piano," says Paoro, "but with this album, we built an entire world with the sonics alone."
Despite his loss to Jesse Camp, MTV hired Holmes as a VJ shortly after Wanna Be a VJ. He went on to host several MTV shows, including 120 Minutes, Video Clichés, a Real World reunion special, and the popular Say What? Karaoke until 2001. His MTV career lasted about three years longer than Camp's.
After leaving MTV in 2002, Holmes hosted FX's weekly movie night "DVD on TV" for ten seasons, and Court TV's "Saturday Night Solution" for six. He also hosted CBS's reality comedy series "Fire Me Please" in 2005. On July 7, 2007, he co-hosted Bravo's coverage of the Live Earth Concerts with Karen Duffy. He also appeared on a variety of talking-head shows for VH1, E!, Tru TV on BBC. Holmes had a recurring role as "Leslie Frost" on Comedy Central's Reno 911!.
Holmes came out as a gay man in Out magazine in 2002. On September 23, 2010, Holmes contributed a video to the "It Gets Better" project, spearheaded by advice columnist and gay rights activist Dan Savage.
He has been an Editor-at-Large for Esquire Magazine since 2015. Currently, he is the host of the LGBT-themed Earwolf podcast Homophilia, which Entertainment Weekly called "thoughtful and charming."
He also hosts the Maximum Fun comedy quiz show International Waters, and, along with musician Mike Doughty, the Real World-themed Feral Audio podcast "Truu Stowray." He also appeared in a series of commercials for Ford motors.
Since 2003, Holmes has co-hosted the live comedy game show "The Friday Forty" with The Walking Dead executive producer Scott M. Gimple. He is also an on-air personality on the SiriusXM music channel The Spectrum.
On June 28, 2016, Penguin Random House's Crown Archetype imprint published Holmes' nonfiction book Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs. The memoir chronicles Holmes's experiences coming to self-acceptance during adolescence and early adulthood, with popular music as a guide and backdrop, from the 1980s through the present day. Kirkus Reviews has described it as "a hilarious and touching coming-of-age story that will strike a particular nerve among Generation Y."
