Lights releases 'The Listening'; watch video + 2009 tour dates

Lights to release debut 'The Listening' this October


'Saviour EP' Now Available on iTunes and Streaming on Myspace

LIGHTS, the Toronto singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist crafts her own brand of sparkling, otherworldly synth-pop thanks to her knack for the keytar and upbeat melodies.


With songs that have already garnered a collective 15 million plays on Myspace, Lights was also awarded the 2009 Juno (the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy Award) for New Artist of the Year.

Her first full collection of music, 'The Listening', which drops October 6, 2009 via Warner Bros. Records, expands on her sound, which she calls “inter-galactic electro” and describes as “simple lyrics juxtaposed with sounds harvested from the far reaches of my alternate universe.”

Watch "The Listening" Acoustic video:

The album includes a few songs already familiar to die-hard Lights fans, as well as plenty of new material including the first single, "Saviour," a propulsive pop anthem that represents her charming musical essence.

In celebration of her forthcoming debut, fans can now exclusively stream her latest EP via Myspace ( 'The Saviour' EP, which features remixes from fellow Canadian upstarts, Colin Munroe and The Angry Kids, is also now available for purchase on iTunes.
