Jefre Cantu-Ledesma embarks on meditative new journey with an all-star crew for his third album on Mexican Summer
Behold: Billboard's chart-topping superstar himself!

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma has been churning out sunny, radio-ready pop anthems for years now. It’s like, the guy only makes HITS. But no more! No, for his third full-length record on Mexican Summer, Cantu-Ledesma has taken the meditative route and has decided to release a full record of — get this — ambient music!

Tracing Back The Radiance is derived from, apparently, “a few simple piano lines, a need for change, and an evolving process which fell somewhere between conversation, singular vision, and a wild game of exquisite corpse.”

But on top of that, the arena star Cantu-Ledesma has decided to go full collaborative. (Another hard left turn for our guy!) The new record features *breathes in* John Also Bennett, Marilu Donavan, Chuck Johnson, Gregg Kowalsky, Mary Lattimore, David Moore, Meara O’Reilly, Jonathan Sielaff, Roger Tellier Craig, and Christopher Tignor. Oh, the gregariousness!

The three-track experimental album from America’s dancefloor sweetheart, Jefre, will be released on July 12. Pre-order it here and check out the radio-ready summer anthem “Joy” down below:
