Lydia Ainsworth announces second LP Darling Of The Afterglow, airs glittering new single "The Road"

10 January 2017, 15:03 | Written by Laurence Day

Toronto's Lydia Ainsworth is back with "The Road", the first single from upcoming second record Darling Of The Afterglow.

The composer/producer is following up celebrated debut Right From Real.

"I usually have to be out of my element to get that spark of inspiration," Ainsworth says of the writing process.

Lydia's sister Abby Ainsworth directs the accompanying video, providing vivid visuals for the vibrant experimental pop backdrop. "The Road" is a tantalising teaser of the new release, spiralling disparate genres together to create a glittering electro-pop elixir.

Ainsworth's new LP will include her cover of Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game", which was revealed back at the end of 2014, and "a team local Toronto musicians woven into [the] programming, samples, and string arrangements."

Darling Of The Afterglow is out 31 March via Bella Union. Pre-order now via iTunes or Bella Union's official store.
