ELECTRO-POP SINGER/SONGWRITER LIGHTS RELEASES REMIXES FROM HARD ROCK HEAVYWEIGHTS GALLOWS AND HATEBREED

ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO THE GREATER NEW ORLEANS FOUNDATION

Debut Full Length Album ‘The Listening’ Out Now

Singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist LIGHTS has released two remixed songs from her debut full-length album, The Listening, today exclusively on iTunes. The track “Ice (The Shaken Not Stirred Mix)” has been remixed by English punk rock band Gallows’ guitarist Lags and Jamey Jasta, of cult metalcore band Hatebreed, has entitled his remix “Saviour (Jasta Remix).” To commemorate the 5th anniversary of the Katrina disaster, the proceeds from the singles will be donated to The Greater New Orleans Foundation, a non-profit organization that directs funds to many different areas of development in New Orleans. More information about The Greater New Orleans Foundation can be found at www.gnof.org. LIGHTS’ debut full-length album, The Listening, is out now on Sire Records.

It has been an exciting year for twenty three year-old LIGHTS, who crafts sparkling, otherworldly electro-pop that has already garnered her over 24 million plays on MySpace, a #1 hit in Canada and the 2009 JUNO for New Artist of the Year. LIGHTS was selected as an inaugural artist for MySpace’s Introducing program, and she starred in her own short-form motion-comic series Audio Quest: A Captain LIGHTS Adventure, which aired on MTV and MTV.com. She was also recently featured on an episode of MTV’s hit reality program “The City.” Rolling Stone called LIGHTS a “retro new wave…keytar-rocking pixie,” and the Toronto Star praised her as “the very epitome of D.I.Y. pin-up cool.” She has spent much of this year on an international tour with Owl City and performed on several dates of this summer’s Lilith Fair. LIGHTS will hit the road this fall on a nationwide headlining tour.

LIGHTS also recently released a solo acoustic EP entitled LIGHTS.ACOUSTIC. The stripped-down collection of songs includes “River,” “February Air” and “Saviour” off The Listening, as well as a cover of Rancid’s “Fall Back Down” and a never before recorded track “Romance Is…” During its debut week on iTunes, the EP grabbed the #1 spot in Canada, and cracked the Top 10 in the USA.
