Late last month, Lights made her grand return with the premiere of her brand-new single “Up We Go,” and now, the Canadian beauty has decided to share another brand-new track with us entitled “Portal“! The opening number serves as a promotional iTunes single in support of her third studio album, Little Machines, which is due out on September 23 via Warner Brothers Records. The gorgeous ballad driven by sparse, ambient electronica was premiered via a black-and-white visual, which finds her driving down a country road, inevitably ditching her car to search for a portal on foot. “There are so many things that make ‘Portal‘ special to me,” Lights told Refinery29. “It started as a one-chord experiment and was finished in New Mexico on a solo writing getaway. The drumbeat of the song is actually comprised of me recording baby belly drumming when I was full term with my daughter. Naturally a song so unique gets special treatment, and this video is no ordinary video. Myself and a small, talented crew spent the day in an otherworldly glade about an hour outside of Toronto meandering through elvish woods and driving old cars. It was perfect.” Perfection indeed – I’m in love with this!
