Here's a great midweek gem for you.

Eoin French (aka Talos) has just dropped his gorgeous new track "The Light Upon Us." It's a preview of the Irish crooner's upcoming sophomore album Far Out Dust, which he confirmed today will arrive on Feb. 8 via BMG.

"It's called 'The Light Upon Us'... but the idea of the light... it's not a positive light," says Talos of the new song. "It's one that erases things. It's blinding. Sometimes things have to be destroyed for something else to be created. An acceptance that things are supposed to die at some point. Everything has an end."

In addition to the new music, Talos will be on tour next month with Aurora. Hear the new song below.
