Francis and the Lights: Like a Dream

Snoop Dogg's top funk albums, Anna Lunoe's liberating PrivateJam, Danny Brown and more in our look at music this week

In advance of their 25 November EP drop, Francis and the Lights have released a magical new video for their smooth lead single, “Like a Dream.” In one take, charismatic frontman Francis Starlight dances his way, with signature style and fluid moves, through a vast crop field. The track is sweet and gentle, with a buoyant brilliance that is perfectly matched by the video’s whimsy. While Francis has been a pioneer for new ways to deliver and consume music, this is a flat out demonstration of his musical mastery.
