After a run of exciting singles, SG Lewis has locked in his debut album Times for release early next year. To celebrate, the British musician has shared a new song: “Time” featuring Rhye.
As with the bulk of Lewis’ songwriting to date, “Time” features an infectious funk bassline and a catchy chorus. Across the track, Rhye’s smooth vocals blend beautifully with the dramatic string section on what proves to be an exciting new glimpse into Lewis’ debut release.
“‘Time’ is a song that is central to the album thematically and sonically,” the producer explained in a statement. “Rhye has one of the most unique and distinctive voices out there, and I’ve been a fan for so long. We wrote the song at Rhye’s studio after watching the sun set in Topanga Canyon, a memory which makes this song even more special to me. The beat initially started from a piano loop and a Dennis Edwards sample Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs had started working on with Julian, which I then turned into the instrumental late one night in Nashville.”
Times will be released on February 19, 2021. Listen to “Time” here:
