Lighthouse is the fifth studio album by American musician David Crosby, released in October 2016 via GroundUP Music.

Despite a career characterised by collaboration, recent years have seen David Crosby taking centre-stage more than ever. Considering the 18 years that passed between his first and second solo LPs, this follow-up to 2014’s Croz would suggest that he’s enjoying something of a creative purple patch.

Lighthouse sees Crosby at his most stripped-back; rather than attempting to update his sound to suit the times it feels as if he has distilled it, leaving something akin to Essence Of Crosby, despite being crafted in cahoots with Michael League of Snarky Puppy. It’s there in his remarkably pure voice, only slightly weathered around the edges; in the dexterous, unexpected twisting and turning of his melodies, as mischievous as ever, and in his willingness to let the songs breathe, subtle and unhurried. Let’s face it, the man has an augmented chord or two up his sleeve and he’s not afraid to use them.

The snaking guitar that pulls “The Us Below” along and the wonder with which he imbues “Drive To The Desert” (“when you start to feel very small, that’s a very good sign”) couldn’t be mistaken for anybody else. Elsewhere, the likes of “The Things We Do For Love” and “Paint You A Picture” are impossibly tender, emphasising his romantic side, often overlooked among the flag flying and whatnot. Let’s hope another comes along soon.

Check out the tracks: “Things We Do For Love”; “The Us Below” and “Drive Out To The Desert”.

This LP record, housed in a gatefold sleeve with silver embossed lettering, is pressed in the USA on 180 Gram Heavyweight Vinyl and includes a digital download of the album.
