Pretty Lights announces new album with live band, says it’s ‘coming along quite nicely’
Sample star Derek Vincent Smith, more commonly know as the masterful musician behind the Pretty Lights project, has announced that along his ongoing Analog Future Tour, he has been collaborating with his band to record a live album. Even further, the Colorado-native stated that the album is “coming along quite nicely,” an indication that the recording process is well in the works, and that this album will likely come to fruition on the Pretty Lights Music label. Managing to seemingly reverse time, D has traveled against the stream of digitalization of music and use live instruments to capture the “soulfunk hip-hop beat” sound; a decision that has both Derek and fans alike enjoying the music more than ever before.
The Pretty Lights Analog Future full live band tour has been beyond incredible thus far. The band is killing it, and I’m having more fun on stage than ever. We play new versions of PL tracks but we are also writing and playing new fresh breaks/all live soulfunk hip-hop beats.They sound amazing.
We’re working on a live band album, recording it throughout this tour and it’s coming along quite nicely. The style and show are truly original and like no other PL tour. Have you seen a show? What did you think?
