Tycho

Tycho announces new album 'Infinite Health' via MOM + POP and releases lead single "Phantom".

2X GRAMMY Award-nominated Tycho has announced their new album, INFINITE HEALTH (Mom + Pop / Ninja Tune).

Tycho is the project of celebrated San Francisco songwriter, musician, and producer Scott Hansen, and the new album, co-produced with Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and Tycho guitarist Zac Brown, is heralded by today’s premiere of the first song, “Phantom,” streaming now at all DSPs.

The accompanying video, a collaboration with Ricardo B. Ponce aka Pixel Flux, Infinite Health will be released on Friday, August 30, 2024.

Sonically, Infinite Health sees Tycho returning to a more electronic-based production style,

"focusing on breaks, drums, and rhythmic elements. Then, using that as the foundation, and having all the instrumentation follow that lead, as opposed to the other way around.”

 Hansen says. 


The results sparkle, none more so than on lead single, Phantom, which Hansen cites as his favorite track on the album. Accompanied by a suitably iridescent, 80s-influenced visual, the upbeat track sees Tycho’s trademark sound imbued with an Italo Disco neon noir.

“I wanted ‘Phantom’ to feel like a blend of lights in a nightclub with some unknown entity; a moving and shifting intelligence that served as a conduit to a deeper understanding of what's beneath the surface of existence,”

says Hansen.

“It's also about coming to terms with mortality, with the phantom being the ever-present specter. I spent more hours on this song than any other on the record.

I played a Juno emulation for that bassline, and I feel like that bassline, and style of bass playing, is something pretty new for me.”


Now, Hansen has followed up 2020’s Simulcast, a sister album to 2019’s Weather, with this captivating new offering, Infinite Health. Although it retains the personnel of recent works — as usual, Zac Brown shares guitar, and Rory O’Connor’s behind the kit, Hansen considers Infinite Health to mark a fourth era for Tycho.

Hansen says Infinite Health is:

"about hope for the future and a requiem for the past. I kept thinking back to the high-water mark scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, the author sitting at a typewriter looking out a window onto his past, trying to find meaning in the chaos.

Infinite Health is about creating a space for reflection, a mantra for spiritual, emotional, and physical healing. Ultimately, all we really have is our health – both physical and mental – and we wish infinite health to our family and friends.

So in those ways, infinite health is a salutation and an imperative."

Tycho will celebrate the release of Infinite Health with a wide-ranging North American headlining tour beginning September 13, at Ogden, UT’s Ogden Twilight, and ending on November 16 at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN.
