Lights has released a new music video for the song “Portal.” The track is taken from the singer/songwriter’s upcoming album, Little Machines, which will be released on September 23 via Warner Bros. Records. Watch the video below, and let us know your thoughts.
"There are so many things that make 'Portal' special to me," says Lights. "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."
Last month, Lights released the album’s first single, “Up We Go.”
