Electro-pop artist Lights has today released Midnight Machines, an album comprised of six acoustic songs from her third studio album Little Machines (September 2014), plus two brand new songs. The never-before-heard tracks are “Follow You Down” and “Head Cold”, and the leading single is an acoustic version of “Meteorites.” Midnight Machines is available via all major digital retailers to stream and buy here.
Lights put together a special “The Making of Midnight Machines” video to give an inside look at the recording process. The behind-the-scenes video premiered exclusively today via People Magazine, who said “The singer-songwriter reimagines her already twinkling jams, transforming them into dreamy lullabies that put her wispy alto on full display.”

Midnight Machines is Lights’ third acoustic album, a tradition that started when she reinterpreted her first studio release, and it has carried through on every album. This time, Lights worked with a string quartet on completely new and full arrangements that breathe different life into their electro-rock counterparts.
