Yorkshire’s anthemic rock ‘n’ rollers Skylights have announced the release of their new single, “Time To Let Things Go“. The track will be out on Friday 9th February via 42’s Records on both digital and limited-edition 7-inch vinyl.
With stunning artwork by Paul Evans (Painted Papillon Smile), the limited 7” vinyl comes in translucent blue with previous digital-only release ‘Rebellion’ on the flip side, while the CD comes with two additional exclusive live tracks.
The track is already in heavy rotation here at Kool Rock Radio.
It’s an uplifting but melancholic and emotional song, with the signature Skylights sound.
Guitarist Turnbull Smith says: “It reflects on life as if every moment has been written in a book; good and bad experiences, pivotal decisions and hard choices where you have had to let things and people go, no matter how hard it was to do, to ultimately change your path in life for the better.”
The release signals the start of another exciting year for these underground indie heroes, regarded by many as ‘the people’s band’.
Skylights play Magna, Sheffield on 20th April, alongside The Enemy and The Farm, and have an exciting hometown headline show lined up for later in the year at York’s largest indoor music venue, details TBA in due course.
Infusing Britpop and post punk influences, Skylights have built a strong and unrivalled reputation and a loyal, passionate following through memorable sold-out headline shows in venues across the UK, festival appearances (inc. TRNSMT) and amazing support slots (inc. Cast & Shed Seven) since their debut single release in 2020.
