Armon Jay (Dashboard Confessional) searches for a glimmer of hope from a dark place in “Lighthouse”

Armon Jay shares his latest single “Lighthouse” today, from his forthcoming third solo album The Dark Side of Happiness, out September 18. The new record offers an intimate glimpse into Armon’s own inner conflict, a quiet record with subtle dynamics, but emotionally raw.

With “Lighthouse,” which debuted on legendary tastemaker mag The Big Takeover, Armon uses a captivating, beachside visual to demonstrate the powerful struggle of searching for light when someone is lost in their own dark headspace. Along with the track, Armon shares a special “atmospheric” (The Big Takeover) music video filmed and edited by Guadalupe Bustos.

“I’ll stay whole for you
I’ll try not to fall apart
Even on the days I drift out into the dark
Listen to me
Don’t let your spirit burn out
Stay lit for me
You are a lighthouse”
