Prince Daddy & The Hyena’s wildly-anticipated new album Cosmic Thrill Seekers is finally here! The AOTY that people already can’t stop talking about is officially out today on Counter Intuitive Records and Big Scary Monsters.
I knew the moment I heard Cosmic Thrill Seekers that it was going to have a major impact on my life. Not my career––my life. It was exactly what I needed to hear when I needed to hear it, and has since become a coping tool for when my anxiety takes too strong of a hold on my brain. I listen through the album once and I can’t really explain why, but it grounds me. For me, it’s a reminder that things always come back around, and that taking care of yourself is a difficult and complicated responsibility that ebbs and flows like the tides. I’m doing okay, and for all of my downs, I will have ups. Honestly, it’s just hard to remember that sometimes and I’m really grateful to have a record like CTS to help.
I’ve never been so sure of anything than when I say this album could change your life. This is like when Weezer released Pinkerton, or when Green Day released American Idiot, or when My Chemical Romance released The Black Parade, or when Jeff Rosenstock released WORRY. All varying levels of albums that absolutely transformed the bands careers and created legions of new fans. Taking those kinds of risks often lead to big rewards, and I think that’s exactly what’s going to happen with Cosmic Thrill Seekers. It kinda already has.
Being a part of the team helping to share this album and the band’s message with the world has been so inspiring––challenging, too, but in all the best ways. I feel like I’ve grown and learned more about myself as a professional throughout the entire process.
Now, if you’re about to hear the record for the first time, I’m gonna ask you to do me one favor. Don’t skip around. I get it, you’re impatient or busy or whatever. But for the first time you listen, try and make it a full listen. The band and CTS producer Nick “Scoops” Dardaris worked incredibly hard to carry out some seriously impactful details that really only hit when you’re fully invested in the album as a complete piece. After just a few listens, those details became the things I loved the most about CTS!
