PRETTY LIGHTS, A COLOR MAP OF THE SUN
This is the fourth studio album for Derek Smith, better known as Pretty Lights. This double-disc album was produced entirely by Smith as his recordings were pressed as samples into vinyl and then mixed by using a modular synthesizer. A documentary will be released the same and is about the making of the album itself. The first disc is titled Filling Up The City Skies while the second features 13 additional studio session recordings of new music made for the album.
VARIOUS ARTISTS, THE LONE RANGER: WANTED – MUSIC INSPIRED BY THE FILM
Director Gore Verbinski produced this album and was inspired by the artists that the crew listen to while traveling to and from the set every morning and evening. Verbinski brought together some of the biggest names for this record, including Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Iggy Pop, Iron & Wine, and Lucinda Williams just to name a few. Originally, The Lone Ranger wanted to hire Jack White to score the film, but he declined and they instead went with Hans Zimmer.
