London-based singer-songwriter, producer and DJ SG Lewis, has announced two headline UK tour dates, kicking off on March 30 in Manchester before a second performance at the legendary O2 Academy Brixton on March 31, 2023.
Fans can expect to hear his latest single “Lifetime” along with songs from his sophomore album AudioLust & HigherLove which will be released on January 23, 2023, via PMR/EMI Records. This latest album follows his 2021 release ‘Times’ a high-energy pop album that has filled dancefloors, underground raves, pool parties and festivals around the world. Tickets go on general sale on Friday, 18 November at 10am at the Metropolis Music website.
Since his emergence in 2015, SG Lewis went from a formative gig as a resident DJ at Chibuku nightclub in Liverpool to appearances at top festivals such as Coachella and Glastonbury. He served up a series of EPs, including ‘Shivers’ , ‘Yours’ , ‘Dusk’ , ‘Dark’ , and ‘Dawn’ . He ignited collaborations with Clairo, Gallant, Khalid, Victoria Monet, and Aluna George.
During 2021, he presented his full-length debut, Times, powered by “Chemicals” and “One More” [feat. Nile Rodgers]. Beyond rave reviews from NME and Clash, Pitchfork attested, “Times is compact and glossy, competent and earnest.” Further acclaim came from The Guardian, GQ, Evening Standard, Notion, DIY, and DORK, while he performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Resident Advisor also touted his 2022 Coachella set as its “Mix of the Day.” He co-wrote and produced “Hallucinate” for Dua Lipa’s multiplatinum blockbuster Future Nostalgia and “Let Me Know” for LANY’s Malibu Nights. Not to mention, Sir Elton John tapped him for “Orbit” on The Lockdown Sessions, and they both appeared together as part of a dual interview in PAPER. To date, his total streams have eclipsed 1.4 billion.
