Steve Lacy Announces New LP Gemini Rights
Steve Lacy has announced, his new album Gemini Rights, will drop on July 15, 2022 on RCA Records. Along with the news, the multi-artist has shared new single “Bad Habit”. Gemini Rights was written, produced, and mostly played by Lacy.
Lacy has collaborated with multiple artists, including producing a track on Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN (“Pride”) on his iPhone. His list of collaborators is a who’s who of game changing artists, all of whom look to Lacy to bring his signature brand of cool to their sonic table: people like Tyler the Creator, Solange, J.Cole, Vampire Weekend, Dirty Projectors, Kali Uchis, Thundercat, and Mac Miller, not to mention his guitar, bass, songwriting, and production with his bandmates THE INTERNET. His song “Dark Red,” which he literally made on his iPhone, just went platinum a few months ago as well.
Like Lacy himself, the record is described “as an amalgamation of references and influences – everything from Caetono Veloso to Andre 3000’s The Love Below to the Beatles to Sly Stone to his friends/band mates in THE INTERNET and much more. Processing his first real heartbreak of his early 20s, with some songs calling out his ex (see: the first lines of album opener “Static” – “Baby you got somethin’ in your nose / sniffin’ that K, did you fill the hole?”) to others fully lamenting the loss (“Buttons”) and bouncing back with indignance (“Sunshine” featuring glorious vocals by Fousheé) and more”.
