SG Lewis has revealed the upcoming arrival of his second studio album, ‘AudioLust & HigherLove’.
The London-based singer-songwriter, producer and DJ just dropped a new double single – album opener ‘Infatuation’ and the feature-bolstered ‘Vibe Like This’ – alongside the announcement, giving a good taste of the direction to be expected in coming months.
On the double-barrelled title of his sophomore LP, SG Lewis elaborates: “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.”
The new album features SG Lewis’ vocals more prominently than ever before, a paradigm shift from producer to frontman that began with last year’s ‘times’ and has continued across a plethora of live shows, including sets at Glastonbury, Coachella and a sold-out headline show at London’s Somerset House earlier this summer.
“I feel like I exist in the space between DJing and being an artist,” he explains. “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.”
