Inspired by a true story while growing up in Sweden – Canadian/Swedish singer-songwriter Sarah MacDougall gets personal on her new single I Want To See The Light (Lost From Our Eyes) – OUT NOW. In 2009/2010, residents of her city of Malmoe feared for their lives while one extremist man shot dark-haired people at night. During this time, the streets were deserted at night. Many people didn’t feel safe to go outside from fear of being shot for the colour of their hair or skin. The new single will be featured on her upcoming 2015 album and is available now on Further details on the upcoming album will be announced shortly, but in the meantime, Sarah will be sharing the new song on the road with select dates this fall.  Tour info listed below.

I Want To See The Light (Lost From Our Eyes) features fellow Swedish vocalist Erika Angell from Thus Owls and was produced by Sarah, and Caleb Stull. “It is a song about finding our spark again. Finding our passion and spirituality again in a world that is alienating and full of growing violence, “ says Sarah about the new single. “It is a song about my personal experience as a woman walking down a quiet street at night,  ‘flaneuring’ like artists have done for centuries. It’s a song about racism. It’s a love song.  Feel free to dance.”
