Tycho is celebrating their GRAMMY Award-nominated new album, Weather, with the release of the Stress EP. The three-track EP unites the Weather highlight, “No Stress (Feat. Saint Sinner),” with “No Stress (Instrumental)” and the stunning new recording, “Stress,”. In addition, “No Stress (Feat. Saint Sinner)” is joined by a new official video. The Stress EP is available today on Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune.
Speaking about new track “Stress”, Scott Hansen of Tycho said “I’ve always wanted to explore the process of approaching the same idea from two totally different perspectives. With ‘Stress’ I wanted to expand the original version from Weather into a very different space while maintaining some common elements. I think viewing the core concepts through these two lenses better illustrates the underlying meaning of the song.”
Weather, available now on Mom + Pop Music x Ninja Tune, was recently honored with a prestigious GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Dance/Electronic Album,” marking Tycho’s second consecutive nod in that category. The follow-up to 2016’s chart-topping, GRAMMY® Award-nominated Epoch, Weather includes the acclaimed singles, “Easy,” “Japan,” and “Pink & Blue,” all available now for individual streaming and download. An array of official companion videos and lyric visualizers can be found now at the official Tycho YouTube channel.
Tycho is currently bringing Weather to the people with an extensive world tour set to travel the planet well into 2020. The “Weather World Tour” – officially got underway this fall with back-to-back dates at both The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and Berkeley, CA – sees Tycho incorporating live vocals for the first time ever, revealing a powerful new human energy to its already extraordinary live presentation. Longtime Tycho collaborators Zac Brown (bass and guitar), Rory O’Connor (drums), and Billy Kim (keyboards, guitar and bass) join Scott Hansen on all dates, with singer-songwriter Saint Sinner (a.k.a. Hannah Cottrell) traveling as the first-ever Tycho touring vocalist. Mild Minds will serve as special guest in North America while Poolside support on all European headline dates through March 2020.
Weather – which features vocals throughout from Cottrell – made a top 3 debut on Billboard’s “Top Dance/Electronic Albums” chart upon its July release, its popular success equally matched by immediate international acclaim.
Tycho commemorated the release of Weather by unveiling an equally innovative web-based app. “Forecast” creates a unique, personalised experience which connects users to the themes, visuals, and sounds of Weather by generating original playlists coordinated with local weather forecasts. Users can then login to either Spotify or Apple Music where they can save and share the playlist to their account. Return visits to “Forecast” will continue to produce distinctive playlists for varying atmospheric phenomenon.
