Episode 09: Francis Starlite from Francis and the Lights
Francis Starlite is behind Francis and the Lights, who in 2016 alone released the album Farewell, Starlite! and worked collaboratively with Bon Iver, Kanye West, The Weeknd and Frank Ocean. He performed extensively with Chance the Rapper and last week released a video for a remix of his song 'May I Have This Dance' featuring Chance.
Francis and I have been friends since elementary school and have been writing songs together for the last 15 years. We talked about why Francis spent the majority of his life avoiding marijuana, what made him give it a try during a rut in his 30s, and the time he unexpectedly ended up in a studio with Kanye West and Jay-Z.
