GRAMMY® Award-nominated recording group Tycho have released their eagerly awaited new single, “Easy“. The track is available now via Mom + Pop Music/Ninja Tune at all DSPs and streaming services.
“Music can transport us to other realities but can also ground us firmly within ourselves,” says Scott Hansen, Tycho’s primary composer, songwriter, and producer. “After a trilogy of records spent exploring the outer reaches of experience I am focusing inward to reveal a human side to the music.”
“My journey as an artist has been defined by an iterative cycle with each album building on and refining an overarching vision,” continues Hansen. “‘Easy’ is about coming to terms with my past and defining a clear vision moving forward. It’s a comforting voice that reminds you not to get so lost in the work, but to take it easy and enjoy the ride. ‘Easy’ is the bridge to the future.”
Indeed, “Easy” heralds Tycho’s hugely anticipated follow-up to 2016’s chart-topping, GRAMMY® Award-nominated EPOCH, due later this year. As-yet-untitled, the upcoming LP marks the San Francisco-based collective’s fifth full length release and first via a new partnership with Mom + Pop Music and Ninja Tune.
“Past is Prologue,” Hansen says. “DIVE, AWAKE, and EPOCH were all released by Ghostly International, the label I have been with since 2006. The past 13 years have seen Tycho evolve from the part-time solo project of a graphic designer into a band that achieved things far beyond any of our wildest expectations. The people at Ghostly have been there every step of the way to support my vision and for that I am forever grateful. I couldn’t be more excited to share that Tycho has signed with Mom + Pop and Ninja Tune as label partners for the next album release. While it is bittersweet to see such a meaningful chapter in this story end, it is just the beginning of another.”
Tycho have set a limited number of high profile international live dates, including a debut performance headlining the iconic Sydney Opera House, Australia’s Splendour In The Grass (July 21) and Japan’s Fuji Rock Festival ’19 (July 26). Additional dates will be unveiled soon. For updates and ticket availability, please visit www.tychomusic.com/#tour.
