News----->Lightspeed Champion New Album Coming Soon



Lightspeed Champion
releases new album on 1st February 2010

We are very excited to announce that Lightspeed Champion has returned with his second album, Life is Sweet! Nice To Meet You. The follow-up to 2008’s Falling Off The Lavender Bridge is an epic collection of twelve pop songs, two instrumental intermissions and one piano ├ętude, set for release on 1st February 2010.

Lightspeed’s early leaning towards American country dressings is traded here for a palette that draws on classical music and even musical theatre. Producer and mixer Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley) assembles the eclectic grab-bag of influences: joltingly ‘70s guitar and synth sounds, classical piano, Greek choruses shouting reprisals, and at least one ukelele-driven moment.

All tracks on Life is Sweet! Nice To Meet You were written and arranged by Dev Hynes.

Tracklist:
1 – Dead Head Blues
2 – Marlene
3 – There’s Nothing Underwater
4 – Intermission
5 – Faculty Of Fears
6 – The Big Guns Of Highsmith
7 – Romart
8 – I Don’t Want To Wake Up Alone
9 – Madame Van Damme
10 – Smooth Day (At The Library)
11 – Intermission 2
12 – Sweetheart
13 – Etude Op.3 ‘Goodnight Michalek’
14 – Middle Of The Dark
15 – A Bridge And A Goodbye
