Turn the Lights on and head to Siberia, at least in an acoustic sense.
Electro-rock maven Lights has stripped down her 2011 album Siberia and is offering up Siberia Acoustic on April 30. The acoustic release features 10 acoustic versions of songs from Siberia and it'll be released via Lights Music and Last Gang Records.
Siberia Acoustic features guest appearances by Owl City, Max Kerman of Arkells and Coeur de pirate. The first single from the album is "Cactus in the Valley," featuring Owl City, which will be available March 19.
Showcasing Lights' love for two vastly different sounds, Siberia Acoustic is her second, beautifully stripped down and self-produced offering. In 2010, she released Lights. Acoustic., the lo-fi sister to 2009's The Listening.
"It's really special the way just a guitar and vocal speaks to the heart, an intimacy that a lot of production can't convey quite the same way," said Lights. "There is a time and a place for each, Siberia in its full form was a different kind of journey than this acoustic record, but this is the version of the songs I sit down and play at home when I'm alone. "
