San Francisco-based producer Scott Hansen, better known as Tycho, recently released a full-length album called Dive. The upbeat electro-pop title track was produced with optimism in mind. "A lot of this album is about lamenting something that's gone or putting things to rest," Hansen explains, "but I think this song in particular is more about emerging from the past and moving on. I definitely see it as the high-water mark on the album, a kind of emotional crescendo."

Tycho's Dive is available now, and you can download the title track for free here.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
