Francis and the Lights has been quiet for a while. Although the New York-based singer was actively releasing solo music in the late 2000s and early 2010s, Francis Starlite hasn't released a song since his 2013 Like a Dream EP.
However, Francis finally made a 2016 appearance on Chance the Rapper's third album Coloring Book, contributing haunting backing vocals on "Summer Friends," which also features Jeremih. Today, Francis and the Lights shared a short snippet of a song on his SoundCloud called "THANK YOU." Chance tweeted the link to the track, thanking Francis personally for his work on Coloring Book and for the new music.
"THANK YOU" is a somber, lo-fi piano tune featuring Francis Starlite's impassioned vocals. Listen below and read Francis and the Lights' GENF feature here.
