Release date: August 2010
Light Me Up is the debut studio album by American alternative rock band The Pretty Reckless, released on August 27, 2010 through Interscope Records. The album is an unflinchingly honest chronicle of Momsen's experiences, filtered through her unique point of view. "The record is about life," she said. "It covers everything: love, death, and music itself. It's rock and roll. It's sex. It's drugs. It's religion. It's politics. Each song tells a story about the trials and tribulations and emotional struggles that I've experienced or observed. It's not a happy pop record, but it's not Satan-worshiping either. The lyrics aren't meant to be taken literally, they are open to interpretation."
