LIGHTS' 'Little Machines': Album Review
Lights returns with her latest studio album, 'Little Machines.' Read the Idolator review!

Last month, Canadian singer-songwriter Lights premiered the video for “Running With The Boys,” her dreamy and nostalgic single off of her 2014 LP, Little Machines. And today, she’s showing us how she captured the magic.

In a behind-the-scenes clip, the songstress gives us some insight into the track, as well as what went down while shooting the video. “It’s about reminding yourself about the old times, when things were a little less stressful. And before you knew too much about life. When your biggest worry was to sneak out of your house and run to your treehouse,” she explains.

Watch above as Lights battles back tears (because of smoke in her eyes) and a slight turf war involving a family of ducks on the dock while shooting the video. Later on, she takes us poolside with friends and goes biking. Not a bad way to spend the way, eh?

In addition, Lights is already out on the road! Not only will she be making a stop at Coachella this year, but she’ll be continuing her trek across North America with X Ambassadors and as a guest to OneRepublic. Check out the full tour dates below.
