Siberia, set for release on October 4th through Last Gang Records/Lights Music, was co-produced by Lights and her trusted collaborator Thomas "Tawgs" Salter. Special guest producers include Graham Walsh & Brian Borcherdt from indie-electro outfit Holy Fuck. The duo initially met Lights to record a couple of songs, but their artistic synergies clicked and eventually they completed nine tracks (including "Everybody Breaks A Glass" and "Toes"), peppering Siberia with Holy Fuck’s edgy organic grit and merging them with Lights’ trademark synth-pop sounds.
Last week Siberia hit #3 on the overall Canadian iTunes Album Chart when the album was made available for pre-order.
Lights fans were treated to a sneak peak of Siberia on July 17th when she leaked the track, "Everybody Breaks A Glass" on LIGHTS – TOES. The track – which IDOLATOR called a "full-on sonic synth assault" – features an appearance by Juno Award-winning rapper Shad who Lights met through a mutual friend and eventually collaborated on two tracks ("EBAG" & "Flux and Flow").
The first official single from Siberia is the infectious dance track "Toes" co-written and produced with Tawgs, featuring Holy Fuck. "Toes" is currently climbing radio charts and fans can now purchase the song on iTunes, where sales of tracks from Siberia are fast approaching an impressive 10,000 in less than four weeks.
Expect more live dates, including international shows to be announced shortly.
