Caroline Polachek from Chairlift appears on the single ‘Chamakay’. Listen to the album through YouTube by clicking above.
Speaking about the album, Hynes said it was inspired by “New York City, the Big Apple. I lived in Brooklyn for some time and finally made the leap into Manhattan. So a lot of the record is about that, transitions, life transitions. Moving from a stable position to an unstable position. Something we have all been through.”
Hynes has produced music for Solange, Sky Ferreira and MKS, as well as being a former member of Test Icicles and creating music under the Lightspeed Champion name.
The ‘Cupid Deluxe’ tracklisting is as follows:
‘You’re Not Good Enough’
‘No Right Thing’
‘It Is What It Is’
‘Always Let You Down’
‘On The Line’
‘Time Will Tell’
