(TORONTO – 22 July, 2014) – Canada’s acclaimed pop multi-instrumentalist and Juno Award winner Lights is back with her third studio album, Little Machines out on September 23 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. 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 first single, “Up We Go,” is available today 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. "I think we captured a timeless electronic sound and I'm really proud of it,” said Lights.  “This record felt like a triumph after a hard dry spell. I turned to poetry, art and female songwriting legends and found myself writing about nostalgia and naivety and just enjoying music again. It feels like a complete journey, from front to back." Lights’ previous two heralded studio albums The Listening (2009) and Siberia (2011) are both Certified Gold and feature the pop hits, “Drive My Soul”, “Ice”, “February Air” and “Banner”. In 2009, she took home the Juno Award for ‘Best New Artist’ and currently reigns as a social media queen with over 1.2 million Facebook likes, 534 000 Twitter followers, 50 million YouTube channel views and 300 000 Instagram fans. In celebration of Little Machines, Lights will start her national tour the week following release, kicking things off in Kitchener, ON October 2. Fans can purchase tickets this Friday, July 25 or one of three exclusive fan experience packages via iamlights.com now! More tour dates to be added soon.
