Through his Secret Songs YouTube channel, Ryan Hemsworth just posted this behind-the-scenes video of Lontalius in the studio recording new song "Light Shines Through Dust" while wearing an "HD IS OFF" tee. The footage is backed by some audio from Australia's Triple J Morning Radio Show, where guest DJ Hemsworth originally debuted the track. As FADER wrote last week in Lontalius' GEN F profile, "Speaking on the air, [Hemsworth] praised Johnston's tireless, Lil B-like work ethic and called his songs 'the most fragile, emotional music.'" We for sure agree.
