If it feels like it’s not been too long since we last heard from Idaho’s Joshua Lewis, that’s because it hasn’t – January 2021, to be precise. That was when he released his most recent album Too Soft, and fans of that record will be delighted to know he’s back late next month with an album that picks up where its predecessor left off.
“[Creating the record] was all about discipline and motivation to make the best possible thing I was capable of, striving for perfection and doing what I love” Lewis explains as the driving force behind his latest offering, Friction, which we’re announcing today as well as premiering its lead single.
‘Heartbreaker’ stretches past the five-and-a-half minute mark thanks to a lengthy guitar solo that it’s very easy to get lost in. The song’s full of musical details and nuance that makes it a particularly engaging listen, and an encouraging signpost for the rest of the record. Stream it below – Friction arrives Friday November 11th via Earth Libraries.
