Today, Ghost Light have announced a new forthcoming album, dubbed The Healing, due out on Oct. 7 via Royal Potato Family. The 8-track will be the ensembles’ sophomore release, following 2019’s Best Kept Secrets. To accompany the LP announcement, Ghost Light also shared a new song, “Take Some Time,” off the upcoming collection of new music. Listen now.
Tom Hamilton offered a quote where he touched on the context behind The Healing. He shared: “The story is less the fallout, as it is the recovery.” Before continuing, “Sticking with it. Staying the course in the face of adversity, uncomfortable conversations or situations. The path to health and healing is often not the path of least resistance but the path to perseverance and doing the work.”
Ghost Light’s second studio album features musical contributions from Hamilton on lead guitar and vocals, along with Raina Mullen on lead vocals and guitar, Holly Bowling on keys, Taylor Shell on bass and Scotty Zwang on drums. Together, the ensemble has delivered a taste of The Healing with the single and official music video for “Take Some Time,” a synth-filled number with a fierce bassline and glistening guitar solos, which follows their initial release, “Don’t Say Goodnight Just Yet,” which was shared earlier this year.
In support of the new record, Ghost Light will head out on tour beginning on Oct. 6 at the Turf Club in St. Paul, Minn. The troupe will work across the Midwest and East Coast before landing Pacific side in early December for a handful of West Coast stops down the coast until the tour wraps on Dec. 16 at Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles.
