SG Lewis has announced his debut album Times by releasing the new single “Feed the Fire” featuring Lucky Daye.
The British artist builds “Feed the Fire” on a funky rhythm section, swooping strings and stuttering synths—a sound that makes perfect sense for a record intended as an homage to disco.
“Times is an ode to the present moment,” the producer said in a statement. “2020 has shown us that the experiences we took for granted in the past, are never promised tomorrow, and that the opportunity to dance together may not always be there again. After reading about ’70s New York and the birth of disco, I became infatuated with the euphoria and escapism that the music from that period created, and the safe spaces the clubs at the time provided for people to express themselves. I aimed to create a world musically that captured those same feelings, and to imagine the music that would be playing in those rooms if they were to exist today.”
The album will also include previous singles “Chemicals” and Lewis’ massive Robyn and Channel Tres collab “Impact.” Times follows the musician’s thematic run of EPs Dusk, Dark and Dawn, which were released over 2018 and 2019. Aside from his own solo work this year, Lewis also collaborated with Victoria Monét and Khalid on “Experience.”
Times will be released on February 19. Listen to “Feed the Fire” below:
