Genre-bending artist Blacklite District (real name Kyle Pfeiffer) is ready to release his new single, “Live Another Day.” Blacklite District describes his musical style as a distinct genre that falls somewhere in the folds of both alternative and hip-hop music.
New Noise are proud to premiere the acoustic version of “Live Another Day” below:
Having grown up in hard rock bands Blacklite District always maintained one foot in the rock world while continuing to explore other musical genres. While some may say his current sound fits more in the hip-hop world, he never wants his music to be defined solely by one genre alone.
Recently Blacklite District has seen great success from a series of Minecraft themed music videos. His first “Minecraft” music video was titled “Cold as Ice” and it received over 60 million views on YouTube. Overall Blacklite District has created a total of eight Minecraft videos, including the recently released music video for “Falling,” which trended at #3 on YouTube and received over 1.3 million views in its first 3 days.
By connecting with the loyal fans of Minecraft, Blacklite District has been able to tap into a unique group of dedicated and loyal fans who have helped spread the word of Blacklite District to the world growing its following to over 174K subscribers on YouTube.
On the track’s release, Pfeiffer states:
“The stripped-down version of ‘Live Another Day’ is special to me because that’s how the song was written… an acoustic guitar and notepad. The ‘old fashioned’ way as some would say.
I think it lets you really hear the songwriting and how raw the song really is. The new album is going to be full of tracks with stripped-down versions because of that exact reason.”
