LYDIA AINSWORTH announces UK dates in May.

Shares new single "Into The Blue", taken from her new album Darling of the Afterglow, due 31st March!

 

Toronto-based artist, composer and producer Lydia Ainsworth will release her gorgeous new record later this month, and today she shares the album’s third single, 'Into The Blue'. She says of the single, "Into The Blue is about reaching the very bottom of one's emotional depths to achieve purification from fear. "

 

Lydia has also announced two UK headline shows in May as part of her European tour:

Tuesday 30th May - The Joker, Brighton
Wednesday 31st May - London Fields Brewery, London
Thursday 1st June - Escape B, Paris
Friday 2nd June - Trix Bar, Antwerp
Saturday 3rd June - V11, Rotterdam
Monday 5th June - Uebel & Gefährlich, Hamburg
Tuesday 6th June - YUCA, Cologne
Wednesday 7th June - Kantine am Berghain, Berlin
Thursday 8th June - Sugar Factory, Amsterdam


Darling of the Afterglow will be released through Bella Union on March 31st, 2017 - pre-order vinyl, CD and digital copies BELOW. 

Darling of the Afterglow is Lydia Ainsworth’s second record and follow up to the Juno-nominated and critically acclaimed Right From Real (2014). The album features a team of local Toronto musicians, woven into Ainsworth’s programming, samples and string arrangements. “I usually have to be out of my element to get that spark of inspiration,” she says of songwriting. The songs on Darling of the Afterglow were all begun away from home, before being brought to fruition in her hometown.

Mixing yearning pop with other-worldly synthetic sounds, plush classical settings and weird-gothic R&B influences, Lydia Ainsworth’s new album is a richly imagined, richly felt work of future-pop classicism: an album of intimate emotions projected in heightened widescreen. The stunning, 11-track Darling of the Afterglow showcases a great leap forward from Right from Real’s already prodigious experi-pop riches.

Darling of the Afterglow is Lydia Ainsworth’s sophomore record and follow up to the Juno-nominated and critically acclaimed Right From Real (2014). The album features a team of local Toronto musicians, woven into Ainsworth’s programming, samples and string arrangements. “I usually have to be out of my element to get that spark of inspiration,” she says of songwriting.

The stunning, 11-track Darling of the Afterglow - from the lush lullaby of “Afterglow,” to the immersive “Into The Blue,” to the masterful cover of Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” - showcases a great leap forward from Right from Real’s already prodigious experi-pop riches.
