Cuco makes a little journey through time before his upcoming album, fantasy gateway. The Mexican-American singer-songwriter, known for music with a psychedelic kick, has shared his new song ‘Time Machine,’ a dreamy musing on what it would mean to teleport back in time and change the outcome of a relationship.
“When I was writing the song, I was sitting in my bed and, at a low point in my life, recording an audio message in a vulnerable place,” Cuco said in a press release. “I took that and put it in a world of hyperrealism and space-time travel.” He released the song along with a lyric video with a homemade, cyberpunk-style aesthetic.
The song follows “Caution”, the first single from fantasy gateway. The dazed, blown-out track was released alongside a video with trippy visuals by Grin Machine and directed by Cole Kush, to match the sonic universe Cuco has created over his past few projects. After a few EPs and a two-year bidding war from labels wanting to sign him, Cuco released his debut album, Para Wedin 2019.
fantasy gateway will be released July 22 via Interscope Records. It features collaborations with Kacey Musgraves, Adriel Favela, Bratty, and DannyLux.
