Tycho has announced that he will release new album ‘Weather’ in July. The first single, ‘Pink & Blue’, is one of several on the LP featuring vocals from Hannah Cottrell, aka Saint Sinner.

“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”, says Cottrell of lyrics found in the new track.

“It was a defining moment for me”, she adds. “I went from being a young religious kid who thought she would marry a man to a young woman who realised her love for 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”.

Explaining the tie-up with Cottrell, Tycho main man Scott Hansen adds: “When setting out to record ‘Weather’, I wanted to finally fulfil what had been a vision of mine since the beginning: to incorporate the most organic instrument of all, the human voice”.

“I met Hannah Cottrell, and the vocal component of the album immediately came into focus”, he goes on. “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”.

‘Weather’ will be out on 12 Jul. Tycho will perform live in London at Printworks on 5 Mar 2020.
