THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Pop Levi has been dubbed a cult hero, lauded for his work with Ladytron and Super Numeri, and rewarded for his collaborations with The Weeknd, Childish Gambino, and Ariel Pink. Mark Of Paradise, the Los Angeles by-way-of London artist’s long-anticipated fourth album, features some of the best songwriting of Levi’s prismatic catalogue.

The new collection showcases a simplicity and clarity that hangs coolly on Pop’s songwriting mastery. There’s a reverent nod to classics by the likes of Dylan, Prince, and Lennon, while also weaving together elements of Psych, Folk, and Pop in a 21st century post-modern setting. Recorded solo in Levi’s home studio in East LA, there is bedroom intimacy to the unbridled glamour and rock that has always provided the heart of Levi’s music.”
