SG Lewis is back this week with new music, a preview of his upcoming album.
On Thursday, the singer-producer shared his dazzling new track "Lifetime," which comes with a video directed by Jason Lester. It's the latest song from Lewis, whose Ty Dolla $ign and Lucky Daye collaboration "Vibe Like This" was Variance's Big Obsession back in September. Lewis's new record AudioLust & HigherLove is out Jan. 27 via Astralwerks.
“I think that ‘Lifetime’ could be my favorite record I’ve ever made," says Lewis. "I wrote it with my friends Ed Drewett, Reuben James and J Moon late one night at Decoy Studios, and the song is largely about Ed and his wife. It’s a song that channels inspiration from a lot of the music I grew up listening to and holds a very special place in my heart.”
Of the album, Lewis says: “The album is clearly split into two worlds. AudioLust is the darker, lusty, infatuated, short-lived, and ego-driven version of love. The second half represents a much deeper, actualized, and fulfilled version of love. Songs fall on either half of the record. I feel like I exist in the space between DJing and being an artist."
He continues: "The bulk of the album was written across a series of intensive studio residencies in the height of the pandemic, with the help of some incredibly talented friends, and allowed me to explore myself as an artist in a way that I would never have dared before.”
