08 December 2020, 17:13 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

SG Lewis has teamed up with Rhye on new song "Time", which will feature on his upcoming debut album times.

"Time" marks the first time SG Lewis has worked with Canada's Rhye, and follows on from October's Lucky Daye collaboration "Feed The Fire".

SG Lewis says of the collaboration, ""Time" is a song that is central to the album thematically and sonically. Rhye has one of the most unique and distinctive voices out there, and I’ve been a fan for so long. We wrote the song at Rhye’s studio after watching the sun set in Topanga canyon, a memory which makes this song even more special to me."

He adds, "The beat initially started from a piano loop and a Dennis Edwards sample TEED had started working on with Julian, which I then turned into the instrumental late one night in Nashville."

Rhye is currently preparing to release his new album Home, which arrives via Loma Vista Recordings on 22 January 2021, and is available to pre-order now.

times will be SG Lewis' first collection of tracks since last year's Dawn EP, and will feature "Impact" and April's "Chemicals".

Lewis says of his debut LP, "times is an ode to the present moment. 2020 has shown us that the experiences we took for granted in the past, are never promised tomorrow, and that the opportunity to dance together may not always be there again. After reading about 70’s New York and the birth of Disco, I became infatuated with the euphoria and escapism that the music from that period created, and the safe spaces the clubs at the time provided for people to express themselves. I aimed to create a world musically that captured those same feelings, and to imagine the music that would be playing in those rooms if they were to exist today."

"Time" featuring Rhye is out now. SG Lewis' times album will arrive via EMI Records on 19 February 2021, and is available to pre-order now.
