Luke Thompson Introduces His Next Collection with 'A Light Calling'

Written in the first week of lockdown in New Zealand, Thompson explains, “as this song was emerging it seemed to encapsulate this intense feeling of liberation for me. A sense of relief, like some universal exhale and detox from constant rush”.

The track adds a new layer of exploration for the Tauranga based songwriter and producer; “this whole project came to me really quickly as I plugged in an old keyboard and stumbled upon this cheesy electric piano sound, which became the through-line and catalyst for the new record.”

An introduction for what is to come, you can expect influences from the likes of Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and Dirty Dancing throughout. Written, recorded, and mixed by himself, these influences offer a new dimension of production and expression for the artist stating, “I think I had been fighting some of these musical sensibilities all of my life, so instead I just embraced them and turned up the reverb.”

A Light Calling is out Friday, 26th May on all streaming platforms, with more to follow in 2023.
