And just like that, Lydia Ainsworth is back with a new single and a new album on the way. “The Road” is the first song released since 2014’s phenomenal Right from Real, which has been on constant rotation on our decks, but now we joyfully have something new to listen to over and over again. This song continues Ainsworth’s brand of orchestral melancholic pop but sounds definitively more massive than her more minimal previous work. The video–directed by Lydia’s sister Abby–is a beautiful and stunning spectacle that pairs nicely with the song.
Lydia Ainsworth’s sophomore album Darling Of The Afterglow is out March 31 on Arbutus and Bella Union. Let’s begin counting down the days, shall we?
