Second Studio Album AudioLust & HigherLove Out January 27, 2023, Via Astralwerks
North American Tour Currently Underway – Set To Play The Greek Theatre In Los Angeles Tomorrow
British singer-songwriter, producer and DJ, SG Lewis, shares “Lifetime”, the next taste of his forthcoming album. Listen HERE and watch the Jason Lester-directed music video.
Speaking on the track, SG Lewis explains: “I think that ‘Lifetime’ could be my favorite 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 that SG Lewis’ second full-length album AudioLust & HigherLove, is due out January 27, 2023, via Astralwerks. The new album sees the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer building 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 more to be announced, alongside SG’s own vocals which are featured more prominently than ever before.
Talking about the album, SG Lewis reveals, “The album is clearly split into two worlds,” SG Lewis explains. “AudioLust is the darker, lusty, infatuated, short-lived, and ego-driven version of love. The second half represents a much deeper, actualized, and fulfilled version of love. Songs fall on either half of the record. I feel like I exist in the space between DJing and being an artist. The bulk of the album was written across a series of intensive studio residencies in the height of the pandemic, with the help of some incredibly talented friends, and allowed me to explore myself as an artist in a way that I would never have dared before.”
SG Lewis’ new album, AudioLust & HigherLove is available to pre-order/save HERE via Astralwerks.

This past summer, SG Lewis returned to the limelight with two knockout singles: nocturnal floorfiller “Missing You” and the italo-influenced anthem “Something About Your Love” (LISTEN). Both tracks have seen widespread support across press and radio and racked up over 3M streams in just a few weeks. The follow up, released earlier this Fall was another double A-Side single, featuring the album’s euphoric opening track, “Infatuation” hailed by The FADER as “moredisco-indebted with a pleasant ethereal quality brought in by Lewis’s vocals,” and LP highlight “Vibe Like This” (LISTEN), featuring GRAMMY®-nominated powerhouse Ty Dolla $ign and LA rising star Lucky Daye, which Billboard called “a chilled-out moment,” adding that the new “soul-stirring double A-side sends expectations for what’s to come soaring.” Watch the Jason Lester-directed “Vibe Like This” video.
