Sleeping At Last’s Ryan O’Neal has had big plans for 2013. The singer and multi-instrumentalist is one-third of the way through a project entitled Atlas that will include the release of six EPs throughout the year. Light, the second EP of the project, is a follow up to January’s Darkness EP.
“This collection of songs explores as many interpretations of “light” as I could imagine: weightlessness, exposure, heaven, hope, new life, fireworks and even stories projected onto movie theater screens,” says O’Neal.
Light is certainly a visual album. The floating keys and accompanying strings section complement O’Neal’s vocals. It’s no wonder that O’Neal’s music has been featured on soundtracks for everything from Grey’s Anatomy to the viral hit, Kid President.
Light will be officially released on June 11, but you can listen to the album in its entirety in the player below.
