Francis of Delirium has announced her highly anticipated debut album Lighthouse, released on 22 March 2024 via Dalliance Recordings.Francis of Delirium is the moniker of 22-year old, Luxembourg-based Jana Bahrich. The young artist's incredible journey up until this point has seen her release three critically acclaimed EPs, All Change, Wading and The Funhouse. With praise so far from the likes of Stereogum, FADER, Pitchfork, The Line of Best Fit, 6 Music, Clash, KEXP and NPR to name but a few, Francis of Delirium is on the precipice of something extremely exciting with debut album Lighthouse.As Francis of Delirium has progressed over three EPs and two previously released album tracks, Real Love and First Touch (both produced by Catherine Marks (boygenius, The Killers, Wolf Alice)), the sound of the project is shifting from angst filled alt-rock, to embrace a more vulnerable and open sonic palette, weaving in elements of pop alongside rock to create Gen-Z anthems which celebrate the beautiful things of the world. The upcoming album is titled Lighthouse, as their music has always straddled the line of light and darkness, both musically and lyrically. Expanding the instrumentation by incorporating more pianos and acoustic guitars, the tracks on Lighthouse are intimate and disarming.Speaking on the upcoming album, Jana offers: For this album, hope is the prevailing feeling Im left with after making it and listening to it. The idea is that there is this light guiding you out into a space where you can be more open and accepting of love and joy. Even as you gain or lose love, it never really goes away; it just transforms itself, moving into other relationships with you.Alongside the Lighthouse album announcement, Francis of Delirium has shared a new track Blue Tuesday. A track fizzing with power-pop energy but inflected with shades of shoegaze melancholy. Speaking on the track, Jana says: Blue Tuesday was a chance to go back a little bit to our original sound, heavy guitars, uptempo, in your face music. We are a band that really loves to play live, sweaty, messy and physical music, so it felt important to have this song be part of the album.The announcement of Lighthous comes following a busy year of touring with the likes of Soccer Mommy, Briston Maroney, Horsegirl, The Districts and hitting Eurosonic, Iceland Airwaves and Tree Fort Fest, as well as opening for The 1975 and Kings of Leon. In August, Francis of Delirium shared a video for album track Real Love, seeing her step into the role of co-director and co-producer roles for the video.
