Cuco Shares “Under the Sun”

Today, Cuco shares the new single and video “Under the Sun”. The first taste of his forthcoming sophomore album, the single coincides with the start of Hispanic Heritage Month and sees Cuco pushing the envelope of his sound, presenting a new chapter of his career in which his growth and ability to take risks to great results are on full display. “Under the Sun” is a shape-shifting odyssey that fuses the Latin, psych and hip-hop influences that Cuco has showcased over the course of his career, though it is notably the first track where he has explored cumbia specifically. Directed by Carlos López Estrada and Jeff Desom, the visual paired with “Under the Sun” sees Cuco venture into an other-dimensional cantina where a candlelit vigil is held.

“Under the Sun” follows Cuco’s re-imagination of Bobby Capó’s classic “Piel Canela” that originally featured as part of a broadcast Google ad campaign. The new single comes in advance of his headline show at The Shrine Expo Hall on November 1st.
