A whole six days ahead of it’s scheduled release, Pretty Lights has uploaded the album preview for A Color Map of the Sun. Containing a full hour (and ten minutes) of signature Pretty Lights music, it’s a great inside view into the workings of Derek Vincent Smith musical mind. In case that news wasn’t enough for you, if your pre-order ACMS before July 1st you’ll receive 3 bonus tracks and the companion album Live Studio Sessions which is an amazing deal.
Pretty Lights had this to say on his upcoming release:
This “album” is a multi-medium map of my mind and my self. It is personal and honest and I put everything into it. I have stayed on the path of being a completely independent musician and with the help of every supporter and friend, we have transformed a simple idea into a movement, a cultural beacon of light. If you can, I encourage you to purchase a digital or physical copy of A Color Map of the Sun. If not simply support by sharing the music and sharing the idea. If there is any success to be had from this album, it will go back into my rule bending, never ending quest to channel beauty and taste through music and art. Either way, I made this music for everyone. Support this release and let’s show the world how we do. The time is now.
– Derek Vincent Smith
