Tycho is back in action! The beloved artist just shared some incredible news for fans. Not only did he just share a mystical new song “Pink & Blue” but he’s shared the exciting news that a new album WEATHER is due July 12 via Mom + Pop Music / Ninja Tune. We already heard the first taste off the album with “Easy” being a rare Tycho song incorporating vocals. Now he’s back with more with vocals from Saint Sinner once again while the two artists prove to have an undeniable chemistry.
“When setting out to record WEATHER I wanted to finally fulfill what had been a vision of mine since the beginning: to incorporate the most organic instrument of all, the human voice. While developing the initial concepts, I met Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner, and the vocal component of the album immediately came into focus. Our initial sessions were incredibly productive and I strongly identified with the imagery in her lyrics. Her vision folded effortlessly into mine and her voice integrated seamlessly into the sonic landscape opening new spaces for me as a songwriter and producer. It has been inspiring working with Hannah’s voice and hearing Tycho evolve into something that I had always hoped it someday would. My philosophy in life is that when you see a path clearly laid out you must follow it to see where it leads. As an artist you have to continuously challenge yourself and evolve to make genuine artistic statements. Looking back it’s clear that every step of the past 18 years has lead to this moment and I couldn’t be happier with the result.” – Scott Hansen
“The lines, Oh, pink and blue, you know I look good on you, originally stemmed from when I was romantically involved with a man and a woman simultaneously, for the first time in my life. It was a defining moment for me. I went from being a young religious kid who thought she would marry a man to a young woman who realized her love for women. I now found myself, somewhere in the middle, leaning more closely to women. ‘Pink & Blue’ is a love song to no one, to everyone, and to myself. It’s a sweet reminder to all lovers to hold onto their love with open arms; to be fearless about any type of love and to be fearless about losing their love. Love is never lost.” – Saint Sinner
“Pink & Blue” is actually the first time that Scott Hansen (Tycho) has taken on a creative director role for his own music video, and just like anything else he does, it’s beautiful. Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner, stars in the video while Chloe Corner directed it.
It’s really amazing to hear Tycho’s sound evolve. He’s mastered the art of instrumental music and while It’s some of our favorites I’m absolutely loving this shift of direction to incorporate vocals. Especially when it’s Saint Sinner’s ethereal voice. I can’t wait for the full album. Enjoy!
