SG LEWIS AND CLAIRO RELEASE ’BETTER’

Songwriter, producer and musician SG Lewis today shares the video for his collaborative new single ‘Better’ with rising US star Clairo. The result of a chance writing session in LA, the track instantly became a viral hit last month and was labelled “addictive” by Pigeons and Planes” with Hypebeast calling it “the perfect summer jam”. The innate chemistry the duo shared in the studio has now naturally translated into the fun, care-free video for ‘Better’. Shot in Chicago and produced by Weird Life Films (Ravyn Lenae, Soccer Mommy), ‘Better’ features both artists as they drive around the city in full-length tracksuits in a loving homage to classic Hype William’s directed videos of the later nineties, early noughties. Speaking on the track, SG says “I played Clairo the instrumental and she jumped on it straight away! The process was so natural, I kept the beat unquantized from the jam as I felt like it gave the record an old disco feel”. The single is the perfect marriage of SG’s signature warm, sunny house production and Clairo’s dreamy vocal delivery. Clairo reflects, “Sam is one of the most talented producers I know. We met the same day that we made this song, and just clicked instantly. “Better” is one of the first real steps I’ve made into ‘pop music’ and this collab feels like a match made in heaven!” ‘Better’ 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. After an incredible run of dates across Europe, America, Australia and Asia so far this year, SG also recently announced a landmark headline show at London’s iconic superclub Printworks on December 7th. In addition he will return to the US for a full tour starting in September 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’. Currently in phase one – ‘Dusk’ – SG imagines 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’ uses disco, west coast hip-hop and 80s electro to set the scene. Soon to move into Phase 2 – ‘Dark’ – he’ll use heavier styles like techno and rap to move the crowd into the night before heading off on his worldwide tour. US pop prodigy Clairo is on an undeniable ascent, with collaborators including Rejjie Snow and Danny L Harle and her ‘diary 001’ EP receiving major accolades across the world.SG LEWIS TOUR DATESAugust 8                  Budapest, Hungary                 Sziget FestivalAugust 12                Pristina, Kosovo                      Sunny Hill FestivalAugust 24                Zurich, Switzerland                 Zurich OpenairAugust 25                Paris, France                          Rock en SeineSeptember 25         Washington, DC                      Union StageSeptember 26          Philadelphia, PA                     The Foundry at the FillmoreSeptember 28          Brooklyn, NY                           Elsewhere (SOLD OUT)September 29          Brooklyn, NY                           ElsewhereSeptember 30          Cambridge, MA                       The SinclairOctober 2                 Toronto, ON                            Mod ClubOctober 3                 Montreal, QC                          Fairmount TheatreOctober 5                 Detroit, MI                               El ClubOctober 6                 Chicago, IL                              Lincoln HallOctober 7                 Minneapolis, MN                     7th Street EntryOctober 10               Austin, TX                               Come and Take it LiveOctober 11               Houston, TX                            Bronze PeacockOctober 12               Dallas, TX                               HOB – Cambridge RoomOctober 14               Denver, CO                             Larimer LoungeOctober 16               Las Vegas, NV                        Hard Rock Hotel & Casino – VinylOctober 17               Santa Barbara, CA                  SOhO – Restaurant & Music ClubOctober 19               Los Angeles, CA                     The Fonda TheatreOctober 20               Santa Ana, CA                        The ObservatoryOctober 21               San Francisco, CA                  The Regency TheaterOctober 23               Portland, OR                           HoloceneOctober 24               Seattle, WA                             The CrocodileOctober 26               Vancouver, BC                        Fortune Sound ClubDecember 7              London, UK                            Printworks
