The momentum continues to build for Pretty Lights, as the producer has announced that he will release three EPs over the course of 6 months. Pretty Lights (aka Derek Vincent Smith) first gained renown back in 2006 when he began releasing free downloadable albums. He will continue to tap into the immediacy of this approach by recording the EPs shortly before they are made available. March 2, June 15, and October 12 are the announced release dates for the series. Pretty Lights will support the project with some extended touring, beginning on March 9 in his home base of Colorado.
