LIGHTS STREAMS THIRD ALBUM AT THE NEW YORK TIMES

LIGHTS STREAMS THIRD ALBUM AT THE NEW YORK TIMES

Canada’s acclaimed pop multi-instrumentalist Lights has collaborated with The New York Times to offer an exclusive first listen to her third studio album, Little Machines, out on September 23rd via Warner Brothers Records.

Lights will perform a very special show at Hard Rock Cafe New York in Times Square on September 30th, as the 2014 Artist Ambassador for Pinktober®, Hard Rock’s annual campaign for breast cancer awareness. The 18+ show begins at 7 p.m. and is free with RSVP. She will then start her national tour in Portland, ME on October 24th.

 

Lights has been perfecting her own unique brand of synth pop since she was 14. With a couple of Junos and Gold records under her belt, she’s amassed a dedicated ‘Lights Army’ over the years (1.2 million Facebook fans, over half a million Twitter fans), including self-professed fans Miley Cyrus, John Mayer, and K’Naan among others. She’s also collaborated with Kaskade and Deadmau5. Little Machines was produced and engineered by Drew Pearson, with key songs/singles mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent (Madonna, U2, Beyonce). The anthemic single, “Up We Go,” deemed “perhaps [Lights’] biggest banger to date,” by Noisey, follows intro track ‘Portal,’ which Refinery29 called “the wanderlust song of the summer.”
