Steve Lacy — best known as the guitarist of space-soul band THE INTERNET – will release his debut solo album, Apollo XXI, on May 24th via 3QTR. One of the most eagerly-awaited debuts in years, Steve has also launched his website https://geminigemz.org which features exclusive merch and a shareable Steve Lacy AR figurine
Lacy recently released a taste of Apollo XXI in the form of “‘N Side,” with the New York Times saying the song “is a narcotically mellow inversion of casually strutting 1970s R&B. On the one hand, it’s about yearning, with Lacy’s vocals aquatically damp; but on the other, Lacy is far too at ease — far too chill — to really break a sweat.”
Lacy is currently one of four covers for the current ‘Voice of a Generation’ issue of i-D alongside environmental activist Greta Thunberg and models Nathan Westling and Ugbad Abdi. Read the exclusive interview HERE.
About Steve Lacy:
At the ripe age of 20, the Grammy-nominated Compton native already has a veteran’s resume; he was Wired Magazine’s Tech Visionary, Time Magazine’s Most Influential Teen, produced-written-featured with Solange, J Cole, Vampire Weekend, Blood Orange and produced some of Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN on his iphone. He’s also toured the world 3x with his band mates The Internet, given a TED Talk, worked extensively with Louis Vuitton on behalf of Virgil Abloh (including walking at the LV Paris Fashion Week show) and has now eschewed all major label offers to release his first album on his terms.
