Tycho have announced the release of their much anticipated new album. Theie sixth album, SIMULCAST sees Tycho mastermind Scott Hansen reimagining last year’s Grammy nominated WEATHER with an expansive all–new instrumental companion recording. SIMULCAST arrives Friday, February 28 on Mom + Pop Music/Ninja Tune; pre–orders are available now.
“A simulcast is the transmission of a program across different mediums and in different languages,” says Hansen. “With these two albums I wanted to present the same ideas in two languages, one more literal and the other more open to interpretation. SIMULCAST expands on the concepts laid out in WEATHER, but shifts into the abstract with instrumental soundscapes in place of lyrics, opening up a visual space and translating the message into a new language.”– Scott Hansen / Tycho
SIMULCAST presents new versions of five songs featured on WEATHER including the first single, “Outer Sunset,” listen above.
