Toronto-based artist, composer and producer Lydia Ainsworth will release her new record Darling Of The Afterglow later this month, and today she shares the album’s third single “Into The Blue”. Set for release on March 31 through Arbutus Records, Ainsworth will celebrate the release of the record with her first-ever headlining tour throughout North America. She will also make a stop at SXSW in Austin this week. Full tour dates can be found below.

Darling Of The Afterglow is Lydia Ainsworth’s second record and follow up to the JUNO Award nominated Right From Real (2014). The album features a team of local Toronto musicians accompanying Ainsworth’s programming, samples and string arrangements. “I usually have to be out of my element to get that spark of inspiration,” she says of songwriting. The songs on Darling Of The Afterglow were conceived away from home, before coming to fruition in her hometown.
