St. Lucia's Buoyant New Album 'Hyperion' Is Here: Stream and Listen

Shervin Lainez
St. Lucia

Brooklyn's St. Lucia returned today (Sept. 21) with Hyperion, their third studio album. The optimistic LP features lead single “Walking Away" as well as anthemic tracks such as “Paradise Is Waiting,” and was produced by Rob Kirwan (U2, Depeche Mode).

“I just feel like so much of the music that’s ‘big’ these days is made in a very cynical way,” Frontman Jean-Philip Grobler says in a press release. “I wanted to try and make something that aims high in every possible aspect of the music: it’s personal, it’s big, it’s ambitious, it’s very much ‘me’ and ‘us’, but it’s also made to connect with people.”

The indie-pop group also heads out on the road starting today, with back-to-back sold-out shows at New York City's Pier 17.

Stream Hyperion below, and check out the rest of the band's live dates after the jump.
