Stream Francis and the Lights’s New Album Farewell, Starlite!
Last month, Francis and the Lights performed a live debut of new album Farewell, Starlite! to close out Eaux Claires, the music festival curated by Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon. Today, Francis and the Lights—whose sole member also goes by the name Francis Farewell Starlite—shared the studio version of the album via his website. Starlite! includes “Friends,” Francis’s song with Bon Iver (and video featuring Kanye West), as well as earlier songs “See Her Out (That’s Just Life)” and “Thank You.” It’s Francis’s first full-length project, following 2013’s Like a Dream EP.
Farewell, Starlite! comes six days before Bon Iver’s new record 22, A Million, which arrives next Friday, September 30. Stream the album via Francis’s website here (among the new songs, “May I Have This Dance” is an early standout). As of now, the album is not yet available on other digital platforms.
