When artists announce bonus or deluxe editions of albums, I typically groan as those two words are usually code for “album leftovers that aren’t that good but we could use a buck”. JayeL Audio favorite Cut Copy already bucked that trend with previous required listens “In These Arms Of Love” and “Like Any Other Day” and the Aussies are adding 3 other cuts to last year’s standout, Free Your Mind.
The latest new track is “Lights Shine On”, a guitar and electronic infused anthem that once again finds Dan Whitford’s hovering vocals perfectly placed. Besides, Cut Copy happens to excel in crafting songs with “lights” in the title. How this song ended up on the cutting room floor, I’ll never know. Stream “Lights Shine On” and pick up the deluxe edition of Free Your Mind next week.
BONUS: In These Arms Of Love
Like Any Other Day
