Lotus announces the July 15th release date of the new studio album, Eat the Light. It’s a first for Lotus, an album with vocals on every song, featuring a range of guests including Johnny Fissinger, Oriel Poole, Steve Yutzy-Burkey and more. The tracks bubble with contagious dance energy and blast into orbit with sing-along choruses.
The Magic Hour, just after sunrise and just before sunset, is loved by cinematographers for the way it makes everything look heightened and surreal. Colors are brighter; shadows are darker. It is a moment when the impossible feels within reach. Eat the Light lives in this moment. Themes of sunlight, summer, cinema, and possibility permeate the album.
Lotus premiered the first single, “Eats the Light,” earlier this year with Billboard noting “the track's urgent drive and stripped-down arrangement, a nod to Talking Heads' Remain In Light era.” Frequent collaborator Gabe Otto (Pan Astral) joins on lead vocals, singing lyrics of technologic-fueled paranoia over bubbling analog synths and a driving groove. Though recreating the energy of a live Lotus show in the studio is difficult, "Eats the Light" has captured that electricity.
