Tonight's the Night and My Dance Floor are the first two tracks from Radio Radio's latest album Light the Sky. This is the duo's first entirely English album. Their previous four records, including 2010's Belmundo Regal (shortlisted for the Polaris Prize and nominated for a Juno Award) were sung in Chiac, the English-influenced French dialect spoken in communities across the east coast of Canada. Creating an English album came naturally to Gabriel and Jacques, who grew up in Moncton, New Brunswick and Clare, Nova Scotia respectively. Both are Acadian communities where anglophones and francophones rub shoulders on a daily basis.
