AMOS LEE SEEKS PEACE IN ADVERSITY ON NEW SINGLE NO MORE DARKNESS, NO MORE LIGHT
SONG IS THE FIRST OFFERING FROM LEE’S UPCOMING
ALBUM MY NEW MOON OUT AUGUST 31
VIA DUALTONE RECORDS
Toronto, ON – June 6, 2018 – Amos Lee has unveiled No More Darkness, No More Light, the first single from his upcoming album, My New Moon, set for release on August 31st via Dualtone Records, an Entertainment One company. Inspired by relationships Amos built through organizations like Musicians on Call and the Melodic Caring Project, No More Darkness beams with unrelenting optimism in the face of hardship. Amos completely re-wrote the song’s lyrics in the aftermath of the Parkland tragedy, inspired by the positive change brought from such a dark situation. Coupled with the guidance of producer, Tony Berg, and top-notch playing from musicians like multi-instrumentalist, Ethan Gruska, and keyboardists, Benmont Tench, and Patrick Warren, Lee finds himself with a rich and substantive ode to enduring. Listen to No More Darkness, No More Light and read a Q&A with Lee at Billboard.
Much like Darkness, the ten songs on My New Moon console, reflect, and uplift. Lee particularly draws inspiration from two young fans who battled serious illness and their families, and how spending time with such unbelievably courageous people changed the way he saw his own life. As Amos wrestles with difficult questions about loss and works through hardships, the record unfolds as a testament to embracing a higher purpose than one's self and the pursuit of peace in adversity. Performances from multi-instrumentalist, Blake Mills, drummer, Chris Dave (D'Angelo's Black Messiah, Adele's 21), and pedal steel master, Greg Leisz, accentuate Amos' purposeful vision.
Lee will tour through the fall, including performances at the Beacon Theatre and Capitol Theatre in New York, the Pilgrimage Music Festival in Tennessee and Ohana Festival in Southern California. A full list of dates is below. My New Moon is Lee’s first new album since 2016’s, Spirit, his third straight release to debut in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, opening at #3.
