Freeloader: Download a new track from Pretty Light's forthcoming EP in advance of shows this week in Boulder and Denver
Derek Vincent Smith, who performs under the Pretty Lights moniker (due tonight at the Boulder Theater), has announced plans to release three new EPs, the first of which, Making Up a Changing Mind, was just posted to his site last week.
With three albums already under his belt that have received a collective half million downloads -- Taking Up Your Precious Time, Filling Up the City Skies and, most recently, Passing By Behind Your Eyes -- Smith's seemingly boundless ambition shows no signs of waning.
And hopefully that momentum continues. Although a release date has been set for the other two EPs (June 15 and October 12), Smith is still reportedly writing material for those efforts.
In the meantime, you'll have plenty of chances to catch Pretty Lights in the next couple days. Tonight, he kicks off a pair of dates in Boulder at the Boulder Theater this evening, and tomorrow night at the Fox Theatre, followed by two back-to-back dates in Mile High City this weekend at the Gothic Theatre on Friday, March 12 and the Ogden Theatre on Saturday, March 13.
Below is the full list of dates (which include stops at the South By Southwest, Ultra Music and Coachella festivals), as well as a track from Making Up a Changing Mind. And if you haven't already, head over to PrettyLightsMusic.com and download Pretty Lights first three albums.
