Francis and the Lights - 'Just for Us'
Release date: December 28, 2017
Essential tracks: "Just For Us," "Morning," "Faithful"
Francis Starlite is best-known for his high-profile collaborations with artists like Chance The Rapper, Kanye West, and Justin Vernon. On his new album, Just For Us, however, Francis stands on his own. Wedging intimate relationship-centric lyrics inside an '80s-leaning synth pop sound, punctuated by his signature prismizer vocal effect, Francis proves himself as a compelling solo artist on Just For Us. Also, kudos for finessing a beautiful song like “Morning” into an unlikely placement as the theme song for season 14 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
