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.
