Video: Lights – “Up We Go”

Canada’s acclaimed pop multi-instrumentalist and Juno Award winner Lights has released a new music video for “Up We Go,” the first single off her third studio album, Little Machines, out on September 23rd via Warner Brothers Records.

Little Machines was produced and engineered by Drew Pearson, with key songs/singles mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent (Madonna, U2, Beyonce), and was recorded in both Los Angeles, CA and Vancouver, BC. The anthemic single, “Up We Go,” is available now to purchase digitally or as an instant grat when you pre-order the full album, and can be heard on YouTube and on iamlights.com. It follows intro track “Portal,” which Refinery29 called “the wanderlust song of the summer.”
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.

Remix: Escort – “Cabaret” (Jacques Renault Remix)


NYC’s Escort delivers a danceable blend of disco, funk & soul that pays homage to the classics while remaining fresh and modern. The Cabaret single package, featuring remixes by Little Boots, Jacques Renault and Tippy Toes, will drop September 24 via Escort Records.

The band previously shared the “sexcapade inspired” “Cabaret” stream. Today, the band reveals the dreamy remix by fellow Brooklyn native Jacques Renault with Refinery29. Driven by thumping bass and Adeline Michèle’s powerful, soulful voice, “Cabaret” transports listeners into a gritty, underground, late-night soiree in the uninhibited heyday of NYC nightlife.
