Cuco Unveils New Single ‘Hydrocodone,’ Announces North American Tour

The surf-and-blues lullaby is Cuco’s first release since signing to Interscope Records

Chicano pop romantic Cuco shared a new single on Tuesday titled “Hydrocodone,” the lead single of his yet-untitled debut LP. The song is also his first release since he signed a unique deal with Interscope Records in March.
A drowsy surf-and-blues lullaby, Cuco’s latest track begs a little background information: in October 2018, the singer-songwriter and his band just narrowly survived a car accident while on tour in Tennessee. Cuco suffered from a number of injuries,which not only forced him to cancel his tour, but remain isolated in bedrest for months. Named after the severe pain medication he relied on in those lonely months, “Hydrocodone” is less of a sun-soaked acid trip than his previous songs, and more of a sobering IV drip for anyone feeling left out and broken hearted. “[I’m] ecstatic to put this song out after two years of working on it,” said Cuco in a press release, “having finished it on my headphones in the hotel room, off Hydrocodone post-surgery, recovering from our accident. Hope you enjoy it.”
Along with the new track, Cuco has announced that he and his tenacious band will get back on the road this summer, spanning the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The tour kicks off June 17th in Washington, D.C. and ends July 27th in his hometown of Los Angeles. Tickets are available via pre-sale April 3rd at 10am local time; general ticket sales begin this Friday, April 5th.
