London-based singer-songwriter, producer and DJ, SG Lewis, today shares the next taste of
his forthcoming album with ‘Lifetime’, a soaring lovestruck classic with lead vocals from SG
Lewis himself. Watch the wedding themed accompanying video here. Alongside the track, SG
has unveiled details of his biggest UK/EU tour to date with nine shows announced for March
next year, culminating in a landmark show at O2 Academy Brixton on March 31 2023. Tickets
go on sale this Friday 11th November and will be available to purchase here:
‘Lifetime’ hinges on head-nodding guitar, handclaps, and a gorgeous refrain laced with
cinematic strings. Inspired by “yacht rock” favorites Steely Dan and Hall and Oates, it builds
towards the soaring and sweet call-and-response, “I’ve waited for a lifetime…to tell you I love
you.” Speaking on the track, SG Lewis explains: “I think that ‘Lifetime’ could be my favourite
record I’ve ever made. I wrote it with my friends Ed Drewett, Reuben James and J Moon late
one night at Decoy Studios, and the song is largely about Ed and his wife. It’s a song that
channels inspiration from a lot of the music I grew up listening to, and holds a very special place
in my heart.”

‘Lifetime’ follows the news of SG Lewis’ second full-length album AudioLust & HigherLove, in
which the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer builds on the kaleidoscopic
future-disco of his debut album times, in an expansive and ambitious record made of two
halves: on one end of the spectrum, he crafts the kind of nocturnal bangers that dancefloors,
underground raves, pool parties, and festivals subsist on. On the other end, he accesses a
higher level of timeless pop ecstasy anchored by just the right amount of breezy hook-laden
rock, organic instrumentation, and vocal eloquence. He suits one mood to the adrenaline rush of
your wildest night out, and he tailors another to the blissful ride home at sunrise. It’s a diverse
collection of classic but deeply contemporary cuts from one of the richest production talents of
the last decade and includes a blockbuster collection of guests including the likes Tove Lo, Ty
Dolla $ign, Lucky Daye, plus many more to be announced alongside SG’s own vocals which
are featured more prominently than ever before.

SG Lewis has cemented his status as one music’s most sought after producers, collaborating
with the likes of Elton John, Clairo, Khalid, Aluna, Victoria Monet, Raye, Ray BLK, The
Neptunes/N.E.R.D’s Chad Hugo, Gerd Janson, Conducta + many more across his illustrious
career. His debut album times, released last year, saw one of modern pop’s secret weapons
stepping out front and centre with widespread critical acclaim from the likes of The Guardian,
NME, Evening Standard, Clash, GQ, Notion, Mixmag + many more. LP highlight track
‘Chemicals’ amassed over 55 million Spotify streams and counting, catapulting SG Lewis’ total
stream count to over 1.4 billion and most recently, Louis Vuitton launched their pre-Fall
campaign with Soulwax’s remix of ‘Impact’ (featuring Robyn & Channel Tres). Behind the
scenes, SG Lewis produced Dave’s seminal breakout track ‘100M’s’ and co-wrote ‘Hallucinate’
for Dua Lipa’s record-smashing number one album, Future Nostalgia.

That rare UK artist capable of making a splash on both sides of the Atlantic (and beyond), SG
Lewis is about to round off his biggest US tour to date (50,000 tickets), which culminates in a
landmark show at LA’s Greek Theatre tomorrow night. SG Lewis has also just unveiled details
of his AudioLust & HigherLove UK/EU tour for March 2023. Tickets will be available this Friday
