    The new 16-track studio album, Second Sight, from synth-pop band Candy Apple Blue is now available on a limited edition compact disc!

    The Second Sight digipak CD was pressed on gorgeous eco-friendly packaging made from sturdy 15-point, grade-A, recycled board stock containing a clear tray made from recycled plastic. The non-toxic vegetable-based inks that were used on this product produced stunning vivid colors that are beautiful yet safe. The velvety matte UV coating gives the artwork the perfect finish and is very durable. This CD is factory pressed, cellophane sealed, and is a Red Book standard disc. It comes complete with a hype sticker and even includes CD-text information!

    Second Sight is the retro-cool new studio album by American synthpop band Candy Apple Blue. Focusing on an authentic 1980's pop sound, this album is a professional and polished release. The musical duo worked closely with Canadian mixer and producer Juno Dreams and Netherlands producer Matt Pop to create a sound that is both unique and commercial.

    The album was mastered by celebrated audio engineer Mike Marsh (Capital Cities, Pet Shop Boys, Erasure). Second Sight contains a wide spectrum of colorful pop songs including the upbeat tracks Dance Again and Crying My Eyes Out. Tracks like Game Over, Dancing in the Shadows, It Happens All the Time, and Turn on the Night have a darker haunting sound that the band is known for.

about

Second Sight is our fourth studio album. The theme of the album centers around premonitions, clairvoyance, and intuitive feelings. It's about living in the present while still being able to celebrate the past and the future. It’s taken us three short years to finish this album. The time went by so very quickly for us.

We want to thank you for your continual love, enthusiasm, and support of our music. We had the opportunity to work with some very talented and creative souls on Second Sight. We are so grateful to the universe for connecting us with them. While these compositions were mostly first released as individual digital singles, they have now come together like pieces of a puzzle to complete one image. We hope that you enjoy this album as much as we enjoyed the process of making it.

Sincerely, Candy Apple Blue
