Pretty Lights releases “Only Yesterday” – his first original production in three years‏

Three years after releasing his Grammy-nominated album A Color Map of the Sun, Pretty Lights has unveiled his first new production in “Only Yesterday.” The song is available for free download at prettylightsmusic.com

The track follows the electro-soul pioneer’s announcement to his social media followers that he’d be pursuing a new direction with releasing his music, and “Only Yesterday” showcases that new vision. The ambient groove takes cues from Pretty Lights’ signature hip-hop influenced sound, yet relies more on sinuous, nostalgic vocal samples than electronic beats.

“Only Yesterday” is paired with a music video directed by Ryan Berena on location in Telluride, Colorado, where Pretty Lights debuted his inaugural eponymous camping event last year. Serving as both a recap of the festival’s rollicking countryside and live show experience, the video is “a piece of cinematic nostalgia, and an effort to collectively acknowledge how important it can be for an individual to find meaningful connection with their FRIENDS,” the Colorado native explains on his website.

The event will return to Telluride, Colorado, for its second installment on August 26 and 27.  Tickets and information at prettylightsmusic.com

Pretty Lights is launching a new Spotify playlist called ‘The Hot Sh*t” where “Only Yesterday” has been added into rotation. The playlist will be updated weekly with new tracks from a variety of artists he’s digging, you can check out Pretty Lights’ curated picks here.
