Francis of Delirium has announced her debut album Lighthouse, will drop on March 22nd 2024 via Dalliance Recordings. Francis of Delirium is the project of 22-year-old, Luxembourg-based Jana Bahrich. So far, the artist has released three EPs, All Change, Wading and The Funhouse.

Speaking to the album, Jana writes: “For this album, hope is the prevailing feeling I’m left with after making it and listening to it. The idea is that there is this light guiding you out into a space where you can be more open and accepting of love and joy. Even as you gain or lose love, it never really goes away; it just transforms itself, moving into other relationships with you.”

Along with the Lighthouse album announcement, Francis of Delirium has shared a new track “Blue Tuesday”. Speaking on the track, Jana says: “‘Blue Tuesday’ was a chance to go back a little bit to our original sound, heavy guitars, uptempo, in-your-face music. We are a band that really loves to play live, sweaty, messy, and physical music, so it felt important to have this song be part of the album.”

As Francis of Delirium has progressed over 3 EPs and the two previously released album tracks ‘Real Love’ and ‘First Touch’ (both produced by Catherine Marks [boygenius, The Killers, Wolf Alice), the sound of the project is shifting from angst-filled alt-rock, to embrace a more vulnerable and open sonic palette, weaving in elements of pop alongside rock to create Gen-Z anthems which celebrate the beautiful things of the world.

Francis of Delirium has had a busy year of touring with the likes of Soccer Mommy, Briston Maroney, Horsegirl, The Districts and hitting Eurosonic, Iceland Airwaves, and Treefort Fest, as well as opening for The 1975 and Kings of Leon.
