“Light The Way” is the second new song unveiled from Ekko’s anticipated new album,FAME, due out early 2018 on Interscope Records. Listen to the previously released song—the “synthy retro” (Paper Magazine) “Blood On The Surface”—here: VEVO | Spotify.
After recording in places as far-flung as London, Stockholm, and Los Angeles, Ekko returned to the city that has proved both a permanent address and the creative sanctuary forFAME. It’s said that people have lucky cities, a geographic location where they seem to flourish or feel they are their best selves. Born in Louisiana and raised in small southern towns, Ekko believes Nashville is magic.
Of the album, Ekko shares,
“I was NEVER who I thought you were.
I was NEVER who I thought you were.
I was NEVER who I THOUGHT you were.
The album is me finding my way through a labyrinth and the emotions I experienced along the way. Anyone can fake it…it’s easy to put on hats, show people one thing and mime the rest…but at the end of the day you have to look at yourself in the mirror and say this is who I am, and I wanted to give people access to who I am with this album.
Ultimately, the album is the truest representation of my sound and my perspective. It’s the sound of me not compromising. Never, not once.”
