Bright Light Bright Light Choreography on 2LP
Featuring Elton John, Alan Cumming, Jake Shears, Ana Matronic, Del Marquis & Mykal Kilgore!
Choreography, the third album from acclaimed U.K. artist Bright Light Bright Light – the solo project of vocalist/producer Rod Thomas, is set for release in July 2016. Inspired by films from Big Trouble in Little China to Romy and Michele, Amelie to A Bout de Soufflé, Choreography finds Thomas collaborating with longtime friends including Elton John, Alan Cumming, Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears, Ana Matronic and Del Marquis, "The Wiz Live's" Mykal Kilgore, and more.
Thomas recorded and produced the album entirely on his own in London and New York. "I knew I wanted to call it Choreography and thought about what it was that interested me about it; the unison, how dance makes you feel," he says of the recording process. "I thought about dancing being banned in New York and about how good it makes you feel. I thought about choreographing my life in London and New York. I DJ a lot, my job is to make people dance and I love watching people dance. That was important for me for the record."
The new music follows two whirlwind years since the release of Bright Light Bright Light's 2014 album Life Is Easy, which saw Thomas touring the world with Elton John, playing his own headline dates across Europe and North America, moving to New York and more. Thomas, born in Wales and based in both London and New York, formed Bright Light Bright Light in 2010 and has since released two LPs, 2012's Make Me Believe In Hope and 2014's Life is Easy.
