Three years after Epoch (Ghostly), San Francisco-based producer, songwriter and musician Scott Hansen return with the project Tycho and announced the release of a new album. Weather is out on July 12th via Ninja Tune and Mom+Pop. We already shared “Easy“; “Pink and Blue” is a new excerpt which features Saint Sinner. Watch the official video below.

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,” says Hansen. “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.

He also announced all dates of his upcoming world tour. Check it below.
