Paul van Dyk has finally dropped his new single “Lights” featuring Sue McLaren. One of the most hotly anticipated records to be taken from his seventh artist album The Politics of Dancing 3, van Dyk has also unveiled an official music video and remix package to celebrate its release.
A firm fan-favorite, “Lights” sees van Dyk team up with frequent collaborator and vocal muse Sue McLaren for a stunning and uplifting emotive masterpiece. Road-tested to tremendous applause throughout the summer, Paul further cements his position as the “godfather” of his genre with this latest offering.
Officially premiered yesterday, Dancing Astronaut described the way in which director and producer’s visual interpretation serves to perfectly embody the haunting nature of the track commenting, “The video for ‘Lights’ aligns perfectly with the track itself; the melancholic ethos set by its minor key and McLaren’s ethereal voice is a perfect background to highlight the protagonist’s confusion and shock surrounding the discovery of her passing.”
