Pretty Lights feat. Talib Kweli – Around The Block

Posted by on April 15, 2013


Derek Vincent Smith aka Pretty Lights has been quiet on the release front lately, but only because he is getting set to release his 4th artist album “A Color Map of the Sun” on July 2nd. One of the hardest working and most generous guys in the industry, he has made a name for himself with a stunning live show and a compliment of free downloads that always puts all of his music directly into the hands of his fans free of charge.

His unique blend of funk, soul, electro, and hip hop has made him a favorite of fans across genres. Tonight, free of charge of course, he released the first single off of the album “Around the Block”, featuring Talib Kweli. The track has the gritty soul that you expect from a PL track and mixed with Talib Kweli’s smooth bars, it is an outstanding first look at what we can expect July 2nd. You can pre-order the album now in physical copy on his website in packages of other merchandise, which costs money, but if there is anyone who you should pick up the CD from, it would be Pretty Lights. If your finances are not in order, then in true Pretty Light fashion, it will be available for free download on release day. After the jump, check out the teaser for the full documentary of the making of the album.
