 Brooklyn's St Lucia returned on Friday with Hyperion, their third studio album. The 11-track LP features previously released tracks 'A Brighter Love', 'Paradise Is Waiting,' and lead single 'Walking Away.'

“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 11-track LP features previously released tracks “A Brighter Love,” “Paradise Is Waiting,” and lead single “Walking Away.”
