Children of Zeus, aka Tyler Daley and Konny Kon, are releasing a new album called Balance via First Word Records this June.

The Mancunian duo composed the album over the past 12 months, using newfound time amid coronavirus lockdowns. The album follows the pair’s acclaimed 2018 debut, Travel Light, and fuses neo-soul with hip-hop, gospel, and r’n’b. Balance was primarily produced by Daley and Kon themselves, with contributions from Beat Butcha and Cay Caleb.

Following the release of their debut album Travel Light in 2018 (which was featured in numerous ‘album of the year’ lists), Tyler Daley and Konny Kon spent the next two years extensively touring the UK, Europe, Australia, and South Africa. 2020 allowed Children of Zeus to settle back in the studio and re-focus on the music making process where Balance was conceived.

“No Love Song” was released alongside a teaser video. “Directed by Tarnish Vision, [the video] looks like it’ll play up the track’s G-funk sheen with shots of Tyler and Konny cruising through the nighttime city streets in an expensive whip with the imposing skyscrapers looming large from all sides,” describes Complex UK.
