A brand new track from Bright Light Bright Light—the project of vocalist, songwriter and producer Rod Thomas—is out now.

This is the first track to debut from Bright Light Bright Light’s forthcoming EP Tales of the City, set for release 7th July. The title is taken from the seminal Armistead Maupin series of the same name, and chronicles, in part, Thomas’ move from London to New York.
Rod and his band are also playing US dates this summer, including in his beloved New York, which will be followed by a September tour across the UK.

“It has the same idea as “Big Business” starring Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin”, says Thomas of New York Pretty, “that you’ve been in a place that doesn’t feel right to you, and then one day you find yourself in a place that immediately feels like home. For some, that’s the countryside, a beach, or maybe where they grew up, for me it was New York where everything made sense and I felt the best about myself in a very long time.”

The EP serves as a companion piece to Bright Light Bright Light’s acclaimed 2016 release Choreography, and features Choreography favorite “Into The Night” as well as a new track called “Thinking About It.”

Of “Into The Night” Thomas says, “It’s inspired by the Michelle Pfeiffer and Jeff Goldblum film of the same name—the idea of meeting someone who changes your world in an instant, and whether it’s instinct or almost madness, you follow them to see what happens, no matter what anyone else thinks.”

Tales of the City joins a pair of Cinematography EPs, which feature Thomas’ covers of his favorite songs from film, which have served as major inspirations for the Bright Light Bright Light project.
Bright Light Bright Light will be back on tour in the UK this September.

Thomas, born in Wales and based in both London and New York, formed Bright Light Bright Light in 2010 and has since released three LPs: 2012’s Make Me Believe In Hope, 2014’s Life is Easy and Choreography.
