New Release: Lights from Distant Stars

(Cover art photography by Mark Casto.)

I’m happy to announce my next release, coming out November 20, 2020. It’s an ambient track titled “Lights from Distant Stars.”

Coinciding with the single I’ll be releasing a video, and for this video I’m excited and honored to team up with a terrific amateur British astrophotographer named Mark Casto (aka Astrocasto), to feature his work alongside my music. The video will be produced in Full HD and will showcase Mark’s breathtaking photos of galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae.

I can’t wait to share the new track and video with all of you in November.
