After his live performances in the Air Studios in London, as part of the internationally renowned Spotify Singles, SG Lewis was joined by Aluna Francis of AlunaGeorge for a stellar live rendition of their current hit single ‘Hurting.’
Today, the songwriter releases his new single ‘A.A.T’, featuring Drew Love of acclaimed American hip-hop duo THEY. Taken from the second phase of his upcoming three-part concept album ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn,’ out soon via Casablanca Records/Republic Records.
‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ chronicles the trajectory of a night out through its different moods and genres and serves as a tribute to club and youth culture, with ‘Dusk’ (released earlier this year) blending disco, smooth electro and funk. The skittering, bass-laden ‘A.A.T’ firmly sets the tone for the album’s distinctly heavier second phase ‘Dark’, with Drew Love’s vocals drawing stylistic influences from trap to R&B to create an ominous track with a markedly American flavour.
“Drew is a seriously versatile artist who blends different genres so easily. He has the ability to flit between singing and rapping so effortlessly. I’m a huge fan of his work as 1/2 of THEY and had wanted to work with him for ages. The studio flow was so natural, and we made two different tracks the first time we met! A.A.T was the missing piece of the puzzle for DARK, and something brand new for me sound-wise, and I’m super happy with how it turned out.” said SG
‘Dark’ currently in Phase 2, uses heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night. ‘Dark’ will feature collaborations with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Bruno Major and Dot Major from London Grammar. The track ‘A.A.T’ is featured on the album’s accompanying short film ‘Dark’.
It’s been an incredible twelve months for SG following his recent massive US tour, which sold out. SG brings his live show back to Europe for a string of dates starting in late November including Bristol and Manchester shows, culminating in a special headline show at London Printworks on December 7th.
