Hiatus Kaiyote – Cinnamon Temple

Hiatus Kaiyote has released “Cinnamon Temple,” the final preview from their eagerly anticipated album, Love Heart Cheat Code, due out June 28th via Brainfeeder Records. This track, a longtime fan favorite performed live since 2015, encapsulates the band’s eclectic and adventurous spirit.

Lead vocalist Nai Palm explains the inspiration behind the title: “It’s called ‘Cinnamon Temple’ because in Mali, they have these mud brick mosques that look like they have cinnamon stuck in them. And because it was inspired by a Malian rhythm, there’s that element to it.” The song’s creation reflects the band’s pre-COVID energy, with keyboardist Simon Mavin noting, “We were getting into heavier riffs—not ‘metal,’ but just heavier.”

“Cinnamon Temple” follows previous singles “Everything’s Beautiful,” “Make Friends,” “Telescope,” and the album’s title track. The album features 11 tracks that capture the spontaneity and collaborative creativity of late-night jam sessions. Contributions from Melbourne musicians Taylor “Chip” Crawford on the frello, guitarist Tom Martin, and flautist Nikodimos add rich layers to the album. Renowned producer Mario Caldato, known for his work with Beastie Boys and Seu Jorge, brings his expertise to the project.

The album’s visual elements are equally captivating, with artwork by Rajni Perera and a collection of symbols and artifacts created by illustrators Chloe Biocca and Grey Ghost. Love Heart Cheat Code promises to be an expansive, psychedelic journey, a testament to Hiatus Kaiyote’s vast musical range and talent for arrangement.

The band is set to embark on a North American tour, with dates in major cities including New York, Toronto, Montreal, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Oakland.
