Fundraising for Joe Hawley Joe Hawley was done through PledgeMusic, with fans being able to pledge an amount in order to receive various rewards upon release. In the lead-up to the album Joe Hawley released a series of advertisements to backers called 'Being Joe Hawley'.

Joe Hawley made a website to promote the album[1], however the website became defunct in 2017[2]


On June 20th, 2016 an advertisement entitled "Joe Hawley Advertisement 1" was uploaded to the Joe Hawley YouTube page. It is a 48 second long humorous, cryptic, and obtuse advertisement for the album, featuring The Ad Twins.[3] On July 16th, 2016 an addendum to the previous advertisement was posted to the YouTube Page[4]; and on July 27th, 2016 a third advertisement was uploaded, which revealed the title of the musical project to be "Joe Hawley Joe Hawley"[5]

Joe Hawley Joe Hawley was initially planned to be released September 23, 2016, but there was a eighteen hour delay followed by a two-week delay. After the time had passed, the album underwent another two week delay and was finally released on October 21st, 2016 somewhere near 03:36:22 A.M.

After its initial release 'Joe Hawley Joe Hawley' could be obtained for free digitally through bandcamp, albeit without the tracks 'We Are In Space' or 'White Rabbit'.[6] however the link to the Bandcamp page went down shortly afterwards.

On May 7th, 2017 a music video was uploaded to Joe Hawley's YouTube page for 'Crazy F***'[7] and On June 22nd, 2017, an official lyric video for Rotary Park was also uploaded to YouTube.[8]

Between October 31st, 2017 and December 5th, 2018, numerous demos, audio samples, and instrumental versions of the songs from 'Joe Hawley Joe Hawley' were uploaded to YouTube[9]

On 11th November, 2020 the album was uploaded to Apple Music, and Spotify[10] with Aristotle's Denial being the only reversed song.[11] In addition, there were a number of changes to song titles, with Crazy F*** being listed as 'Crazy Food', and with more features added to the titles. 'White Rabbit' has also been removed from the 2020 version.[12]
