Lightning Bug Announce New Album ‘No Paradise’, Release New Single

    After sharing a couple of demos, Lightning Bug have formally announced their upcoming album, No Paradise. The follow-up to 2021’s A Color of the Sky lands on May 2. New single ‘December Song’ comes with a video frontwoman Audrey Kang wrote, directed, and filmed on the Greek island of Andros. Check it out and find the album’s cover art and tracklist below.

    Kang began writing No Paradise after completing a 4,000-mile motorcycle ride from Mexico to New York. Opening up about ‘December Song’, she said: “I’d just gotten back to New York City after spending every last droplet of energy I had on riding a motorcycle from Nayarit to NYC. When the trip was over, I fell into the lowest low I’ve known. December Song was my way of giving my life some meaning again, by thinking of my sadness as part of a story, a season. In the song, I retell the myth of Persephone from the perspective of Demeter as she awaits her daughter’s return to a land made barren with grief.”
