Today songwriter, producer and musician SG Lewis share his new single “Hurting” featuring internationally acclaimed British songstress AlunaGeorge. The track marks the first single from Dark; the second phase of his upcoming three-part concept album Dusk, Dark, Dawn.
SG Lewis scores percussive basslines alongside arpeggiated synth melodies to accompany AlunaGeorge’s honeyed vocals as she pines after lost love. The resultant track is a dream-worthy collaboration ready for any dance floor.
Speaking on the track, SG says “Aluna and I met for the first time in LA earlier this year, and I was talking to her about the album concept, and in particular, Dark. Aluna has been a part of so many dance records that I love, so I knew I wanted to make a club track with her! After we ate burritos and hung out, we made “Hurting” super quickly – the whole process was super natural between the two of us, and she has such an amazing ear for production.”
“Hurting” is the latest in a long run of exceptional collabs for SG, with his upcoming album featuring J Warner, Kartell and a host of others yet to be announced. His recent single, “Better” featuring Clairo instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam.” After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a massive US headline tour kicking off at Washington DC’s Union Stage onSeptember 25th and making stops at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere on September 28th & 29th and LA’s The Fonda Theater on October 19th.
This year, SG Lewis began releasing music from his ambitious three-part album Dusk, Dark, Dawn. In his first Phase, Dusk, SG imagined the trajectory of one night out in club music and is a loving tribute to club and youth culture. Referencing a wide breadth of styles and genres, Dusk used disco, west coast hip-hop and 80s electro to set the scene. Now in Phase 2, Dark uses heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night.
