Cut Copy share new song ‘Lights Shine On’ – listen

The track will feature on expanded version of 2013 LP 'Free Your Mind'

Cut Copy have shared a new song, ‘Lights Shine On’. You can listen to the track at the bottom of the page, via Stereogum.

The track is taken from an expanded version of last year’s album ‘Free Your Mind’, which includes a further four new songs alongside the original record. It will be released in the UK on July 21.

In an interview with Stereogum, the Australian group said a new album was “on the cards” but they had yet to start work on it. Drummer Mitchell Scott said: “It’ll be on the cards. It’s always like this thing that’s sort of waiting until you get to work on something new. We usually treat it as a separate stage rather than write little bits and pieces. Wait till we get home.”


Vocalist Dan Whitford also opened up about what the band are aiming for in the future, saying: “One of the really recently inspiring artists for me has been Caribou. He’s done so many different things, folky psychedelic stuff to futuristic dance music stuff. That new track — talk about tension and release. To me, that story with him and how he’s managed to do all these exciting, different things is really inspiring. I imagine that going forward, we want to be able to just do things, to be able to try and evolve what we do. So that we can look back on it and know we covered some pretty diverse territory.”
