This may be the first time ever that Derek Vincent Smith, better known as the Colorado-based music & visual sensation Pretty Lights has asked us to purchase one of his songs, which is an extremely huge feat to accomplish at this point in his musical career considering the fact that he is one of the most well-known acts in the world. Pretty Lights has prided himself on releasing free music for the entirety of the career, and on Facebook, he mentioned it was never his intention to strictly sell tracks off his upcoming album. After his new single ‘So Bright’ leaked before it was ready to be released, Derek decided to release the track for free download. I’ve also included the BeatPort purchase link just incase you’d like to show Pretty Lights some love. Enjoy!
A new track from my upcoming record has leaked out unintentionally. The song is called So Bright. I was not ready to put this track out but some how it’s now posted on multiple sites as well as for sale on multiple sites. I made it available for free download just now on the PL site because it has never been my intention to strictly sell any tracks off my new record.
All the samples used in the track are from self composed one of a kind vinyl pressings. There is a short documentary to be released soon about the making of this upcoming PL album because it was a very unique and laborious process. I’m insanely excited to release the entire record but… I’d prefer to do it on my own terms:). Much love to all PL family, I hope you enjoy the track.
