Lava La Rue has dropped a new single, ‘Renegade’

They've also announced they've signed to Dirty Hit.

Former Dork cover star Lava La Rue has released a new single, ‘Renegade’, and its accompanying video, which was directed by La Rue and produced by MrMr Film.

The West London artist has also announced the news that they have signed to Dirty Hit Records.

Speaking about the single, Lava explains: “’Renegade’ is the beginning of a wider concept/narrative.. [and is] from the perspective of a character who is talking about an infatuation that’s vital to the storyline. The song was made out of a jam in LA with my friend APOB – I knew I wanted a big glam guitar solo in it so I called up Stolen Nova (Josh Landau) who I’d met at a house party the previous week as I knew he had the minerals.”

“When I came back home to finish the song in the UK we got Luca Caruso (Beabadoobee, Orlando Weekes) to track in live drums and the song was pretty much done after the 3rd bounce. It was important for me to not oversaturate the vibe you can hear in the song that was basically created within the first hour of conceptualising it.”
