Lights drops acoustic song and other news you might have missed today
1. Lights signs to Fueled By Ramen, announces acoustic album
Lights just announced that she has joined the Fueled By Ramen roster, noting the label is perfect for her next chapter.
"It’s pretty wild to be on a new label since the last one I was pretty much with since the beginning," Lights says in a story with Billboard. "Glad I found my new proverbial mate, though. Time changes us so much, so it’s only fitting to be opening a welcomed new chapter surrounded by friend's bands and bands I have loved and watched for years. Before signing, I’d hit up my friends on the label to see how they liked it. It was literally like dating."
Additionally, the musician unveiled the first track from her forthcoming album Skin&Earth Acoustic. You can listen to "Lost Girls" above. Additionally, you can preorder Skin&Earth Acoustic here.
2. Hawthorne Heights unveils new music video for "Starlighter (Echo, Utah)"
Hawthorne Heights recently gave their song "Starlighter (Echo, Utah)" a brand-new music video. The song is from their latest album Bad Frequencies, which was released last year on Pure Noise Records.
"Since this song is about how much I hate winter, I really wanted to film footage of some of our favorite fans in California having fun," singer JT Woodruff says. "I want to run as far as I can from that snowy night in Echo, Utah and I always want to run back to California anyway. The song is about having no regrets, and always looking forward to the next stop in your life. Crank it up, and stay out of the snow. Palm trees forever." You can watch the video above.

Trophy Eyes frontman John Floreani has shared a music video for his song "Oh, Brother." The track is from his forthcoming debut fill length sin, which will be out June 7 via Hopeless Records. You can preorder the album here.
"My brother has always been a troubled person," Floreani says of the song. His fight to be a better version of himself has been a long and painful losing battle that hurts everybody involved.
