Songwriter, producer and musician SG Lewis shares the video for new single ‘Hurting’ featuring synth-pop songstress AlunaGeorge. The track marks the first single from ‘Dark’; the second phase of his upcoming three-part concept album ‘Dusk, Dark, Dawn’ which will be released via Casablanca/Republic Records this October 5th.

Directed by Geej Ower, the Hurting video captures the electrictiy of a club dancefloor and a passionate meeting between the video’s two protagonists that perfectly encapsulates the track’s club-ready excitement. From topping the iTunes electronic chart to receiving support across BBC Radio 1, 1XTRA and Beats1, SG’s latest single bounces from strength-to-strength, showcasing an artist who continues to make a serious impact across the globe.

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 will be embarking on his largest North American and European tour yet, culminating in a landmark headline show at London’s iconic superclub Printworks on December 7th.

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 before heading off on a major US tour.
