“Music can transport us to other realities but can also ground us firmly within ourselves” said Scott Hansen, Tycho's primary composer, songwriter, and producer. "After a trilogy of records spent exploring the outer reaches of experience I am focusing inward to reveal a human side to the music."

That interal examination has led the GRAMMY® Award-nominated artist to an amicable split with his long-time label Ghostly International and signing with Mom + Pop/Ninja Tune. "Easy" is the first taste of his fifth and forthcoming full-length Weather, out July 12th. 

"My journey as an artist has been defined by an iterative cycle with each album building on and refining an overarching vision," Hansen continues. "‘Easy’ is about coming to terms with my past and defining a clear vision moving forward. It’s a comforting voice that reminds you not to get so lost in the work, but to take it easy and enjoy the ride. ‘Easy’ is the bridge to the future.”

Tycho brings the Weather world tour to the Paramount Theatre on Sunday, September 8th. Listen to the song below, and enjoy a Throwback Thursday with his 2014 KEXP in-studio session.
