Pretty Lights Releases New Single 'Rainbows and Waterfalls' [LISTEN]
Derek Vincent Smith, better known as Pretty Lights has released a new single “Rainbows & Waterfalls.” It is his first release since the single “Only Yesterday” released in March 2016.
Pretty Lights' blend of funk and hip-hop is once again all over the place in the new song, based heavily on Shuggie Otis' classic "Strawberry Letter 23w" released back in 1971. "Rainbows & Waterfalls" builds on Pretty Lights signature sound with a cryptic new video that hints at more releases to come.
Pretty Lights also announced a run of live shows with his band including Alvin Ford Jr. (drums), Chris Karns (turntables), Borahm Lee (keys) and Brandon Butler (keys). Until the end of a year, they will visit Detroit, Minneapolis, and Philadelphia. Dates can be seen below.
