A Color Map of the Sun

Released On: Jul 03, 2013
Released By: Pretty Lights Music

release description

On previous releases – from Pretty Lights’ 2006 debut album Taking Up Your Precious Time to its far-reaching 2008 double-disc follow-up Filling Up The City Skies and 2010’s extraordinary three-EP run (Making Up A Changing Mind, Spilling Over Every Side, and Glowing In The Darkest Night) – Derek Vincent Smith established a distinctive aesthetic; his music has always shown an iconoclastic drive to blur and defy genres and ultimately avoid pigeonholing.

For A Color Map of the Sun – Pretty Lights’ first album to be offered for commercial sale, as opposed to just a free download – Smith wanted to stay true to the sound that’s made him one of today’s most beloved current electronic-music icons, while at the same time challenging himself to reach new stylistic and technical realms.
