Save Your Heart
The second full-length album from Lights & Motion is called Save Your Heart, and was released on November 12th, 2013, through the american independent Deep Elm Records. It was released later during the same year as the debutalbum Reanimation first came out, explained by the fact that the bands sole member, Christoffer Franzén, ”Simply couldn’t stop writing”.
The artwork for Save Your Heart was designed by graphic designer Elias Klingén. The image, which is visualized through a combination of colours and abstract lines, is a graphical representation of a heart, being connected by two different colors of red and blue, conceptualizing the album.
Christoffer can be heard in several interviews talking about how he can ”hear sounds as colors”, and he has stated about the new album;
”I wanted Save Your Heart to have more of a blueish or violet color in terms of sonic identity. In comparison, Reanimation had more of a yellowish tone’
Apple choose to feature the song ”We Are Ghosts” in their 2015 iTunes/Academy Awards spot. The same song was used in the trailer for the movie Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp. The albums opening song, ”Heartbeats”, was used in the trailer for the Will Smith movie Concussion.
