Los Angeles-based Jordan Lewis certainly can’t be accused of lacking ambition. He’s done musical engineering work for the likes of Beyoncé and Rihanna as well as hitmaker duo The-Dream & Tricky Stewart, and his most recent offering as a musician was last month’s sprawling ‘Desolation Shores‘, absolutely deserving of 10 minutes of your time – though we’d recommend you listen to this first; namely, his new single ‘Company’, which we’re premiering today.
A quick follow-up to his previous single, it trades epic scope for laser focus and attention to detail, with a chiming guitar line and racing piano accompaniment adding unexpected flavours to a song that, in Lewis’s words, comes from ‘a place in life where things feel settled and you know you are doing the things you’re “supposed” to be doing but you still feel stuck in the past.” Having moved to LA in 2013, the song is rooted in lived experience: “You realise that things aren’t necessarily better now, they are just different. ‘Company’ is a song about that realisation and trying to make peace with it.”
Tune in below; we wouldn’t be at all surprised if there was more where this came from so now’s as good a time to get on board with Lewis and his musical vision as any.
