Lights is out with the music video to her new single ‘Banner’, off the Canadian synthpop artist’s second studio album ‘Siberia’, out now on Last Gang Records. Watch it via YouTube below.
Lights checked in on her YouTube channel to celebrate the release of her new album ‘Siberia’. “My second record. My second child is out,” the Canadian synthpop singer said. “What a triumph this record is for me, everything feels like the right, next place for me to go for a second record. It’s a bit grittier, a bit gnarlier with the talents of Holy F***, Shad, an incredible Canadian rapper. Do some rapping on it. Jason Parsons helping us build some beats… I’m just beyond over the moon proud of this record and I’m so happy to finally say this is out as of now.” Watch her comments below.
Lights will be embarking on a tour in the United States and Canada starting next month in support her forthcoming album ‘Siberia’. The trek begins with a pair of dates in Ontario before a U.S. leg starting October 18th in Cambridge, MA. After the U.S. leg concludes November 10th in Seattle, the Canadian synthpop singer will tour the rest of the month in her home country starting November 12th in Victoria, BC and ending November 25th in Toronto. Lights’ second album ‘Siberia’ is out October 4th on Last Gang Records.

Owl City is out with the music video to his new single ‘Deer In The Headlights’, the third release from Adam Young’s third studio album ‘All Things Bright and Beautiful’, out now on Universal Republic. The video features Adam driving a DeLorean and includes a cameo from Canadian synthpop artist Lights as a convenience store cashier… or perhaps not. Watch it via YouTube below.
The latest video blog from Lights features the 24-year-old performing a song she just wrote called ‘In The Dark I See’. “I was just basking in the evening rays of Toronto, thinking to myself as I usually do, ‘Man, I wish I could tell you when my record was going to come out!’ Unfortunately, that hasn’t really been nailed down, such is the industry that I work in,” the Canadian synthpop artist said. “When I know I’ll be sure to tell you. So in the interim, I want to give you new material, but I don’t want to give you something on the record because it’s pretty special.” Watch the acoustic guitar performance via YouTube below.
Lights site down for a Ustream chat and performance on Tuesday (April 12). The Canadian synthpop singer talked about her favorite candy, wanting more ‘Captain Lights’ episodes, what to expect with the new album, her new tattoo, advise for aspiring musicians, her most embarrassing moment and much more. She also pulled out her acoustic guitar to perform ‘Quiet’ among others. Watch the 70-minute event below.
Lights’ latest video blog documents the Canadian synthpop singer’s journey to a secret home recording studio somewhere in Ontario. “I’m a little nervous, I’ve never done anything like this,” Lights said. “I’ve never locked myself away in a secluded area.” Watch it via YouTube below.
LIGHTS offered an update on how the recording of her new album is going, what to expect from the music and more. “The record is coming along really well, I’m really excited about it,” the Canadian synthpop singer says. “Something I’m so so proud of, even though it’s only in its middle stages.” Watch via YouTube below.
Lights checked in with her Twitter followers (@LIGHTS) the past few days while vacationing with her family in Mexico. The Canadian synthpop singer tells readers:
About to go on vacation with my parents, my sister and her husband. I’m gonna be a sweet 5th wheel for a good week.
I have a sun headache – the only headache I can’t complain about. So… I guess I hereby retract this tweet. :)
Rocking a headband for the first time in years! To keep my filthy sea-hair at bay. I feel like a hologram of my old self.
I heard the Pink Panther theme song twice on the radio today. I love this place!
Climbed 120 steps of the Coba Mayan ruins today pretending I was the ancient king mortified of wiping out in front of my glorious kingdom.
Goodbye beach! Back to work now. And by work I mean making music and computer science. So basically by work I mean yay. Back to yay now!
I heard my song play for the first time in another country this week. My smile was raging.
