Coco Announce New Album, Unveil Video for New Song ‘Mythological Man’

    Coco – the project of Maia Friedman (Dirty Projectors), Oliver Hill (Pavo Pavo), and Dan Molad (Lucius) – have announced their new LP, 2, which is out March 1 via First City Artists. The follow-up to the band’s 2021 self-titled debut is led by the single ‘Mythological Man’, which comes with a self-directed video. Check it out below, and scroll down for the album cover, tracklist, and Coco’s upcoming tour dates.

    “This song sprang from nothing while we were cooking dinner in Joshua Tree,” the band said of ‘Mythological Man’ in a statement. “Danny was playing a little eight-note tongue twister on the piano, and we were joking about a familiar archetype: the man who projects consummate togetherness. He carefully self-curates and jumps through all the proper hoops to receive affirmation, but his deepest desire, companionship, is tragically elusive. With delight we realized that the piano melody mapped neatly onto the lyric ʻsee the mythological man,ʼ and the rest of the story and music quickly snowballed.”

    Talking about 2, the band explained: “When we started, we were all either single or in old relationships, living in different places, with different haircuts, priorities and perspectives. Though it’s only been a few years, the band has seen us through fundamental transformations in each of our lives, which we are fortunate enough to process together.”
