LUI Releases New Album as Belated Valentine’s Gift to Fans

GRAYSLAKE, Ill. -- Today, Lui Salazar, known by his stage name as LUI, released his new art rock album, "Astronomical Ways to Die" under the Dead Internet Records label. The album can be found on most music streaming platforms, and plans for a limited physical release are underway.

LUI, a recording artist and music producer based near Chicago, says that his release didn't start out as a love album but became one.

"The album began a time in my life when I needed change and wanted to find love," LUI explains. "The songs started as quirky fantasies and desires. By about the second half of the project, I found love. Some of the lyrics became more direct and personal, but the songs retained my campy, weirdo vibe."

"Astronomical Ways to Die" is a belated Valentine's gift to LUI's fans. For the better part of a year, he has been obsessively recording and producing vocals, violins, flutes, guitars, and various folk instruments for the album.

LUI reflects on his release: "I always felt my last album, 'Truth Is Like a Seed,' was too preachy. This time, I wanted to be profound but in a fun way. It's a love album, not a philosophy book. Life doesn't suck, and woe isn't me. Happy belated Valentine's Day."
