Derek Vincent Smith is a strong proponent of striking while the iron is hot. And why not? Pretty Lights is beaming across the globe, selling out venues for multiple nights, and the proud Coloradan will be releasing “A Color Map of the Sun” on July 2.
However, fans don’t have to wait for next week to start moving their hips, because you can listen to a full preview stream below. The LP will be accompanied with a second album titled “Live Studio Sessions From a Color Map of the Sun.” As Reverb pointed out, look for a two night stint at Red Rocks Aug. 16-17 to get the full effect of the new album in person.
