After recently announcing his forthcoming sophomore album Fantasy Gateway for a July 22nd release, Cuco shares the second offering from the new project with the single “Time Machine.” Arriving with a lyric video, “Time Machine” is a psychedelic ballad about wishing to go back in time and change how a relationship was handled. Cuco shares, “When I wrote the song, I was sitting in my bed recording an audio message in a vulnerable space at a low point in my life. I took that and brought it into a world of hyperrealism and space-time travel.”
Cuco opens a new chapter across the 12-tracks of Fantasy Gateway, which includes features from Kacey Musgraves, Adriel Favela, Bratty and DannyLux. The album also includes the previously released single “Caution,” which arrived with visuals created by Grin Machine and directed by Cole Kush. Fantasy Gateway is also available on vinyl and CD to pre-order HERE.
Cuco will embark on a North American tour this summer after performances at Primavera in Spain and Viva Festival in Los Angeles this June. The headline tour begins in Phoenix on August 14th with stops in Boston, Brooklyn and Atlanta before wrapping up with a show in Dallas on September 2nd. Tickets available HERE.
Earlier this year, Cuco released the collaborative single with boy pablo, “La Novela.” In 2021 Cuco shared “Under the Sun,” which arrived with a performance on Late Night with Seth Meyers, as well as “Paradise” and “Forevermore.” Cuco also recently shared the re-imagination of Bobby Capó’s classic “Piel Canela” which was originally featured as part of a broadcast Google ad campaign and is quickly climbing with over 40M streams across platforms and counting.

From a fairly early stage, Cuco’s songs seemed to connect with audiences online, his earnest bedroom pop aesthetic and evident talent resonating for obvious reasons. Home-recorded and shared via services like Bandcamp and SoundCloud, self-released projects like 2016’s Wannabewithu and 2018’s Chiquito EP mixed relatable and catchy works in English and Spanish, endearing Cuco to other first-generation Latin Americans and young fans of indie singer-songwriters. Untethered to genre constraints, he experimented with styles and sounds, incorporating mariachi and R&B, psychedelia and rap, as well as other forms into his diverse palette as he sought fit. Much to his delight, the play counts on his tracks went from the thousands into the hundreds of thousands, prompting him to bring his music into the live setting more and more often, playing to growing crowds on tour and in festival settings. “It’ll always be surreal to me,” he says. “I never take it for granted if I see so many people at one show, you know, I don’t know the next day that I’m gonna see that again; it’s always appreciated.”
Following the release of 2019’s formidable and unique Para Mí, his full-length debut since signing with Interscope, Cuco’s exponential growth and development as an artist became undeniable. With this forthcoming record, Fantasy Gateway, Cuco pushes 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.
