SG Lewis turned heads with times, including Elton John‘s. Shortly after dispersing his debut album on February 19, the Dusk, Dark, Dawn conceptualist stopped by Elton John’s RocketHour on March 27 to talk the making of times and its diverse cast of collaborators, among other things. To date, Lewis’ record of artistic tie-ups touts work with Dua Lipa, Nile Rodgers, Clairo, Robyn, Channel Tres, Ruel, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. This list—by no means exhaustive—will likely soon include Elton John.
During their airtime, the podcast host told Lewis that he “would desperately like to do something with [him] as far as writing or doing something.” Elton elaborated,
“I’ve just done something with Metallica. During this lockdown period. I’ve been working with Gorillaz and people like that. I haven’t been doing any Elton stuff, but I’ve been doing great stuff with other people. So I’ll get you my email, email me and let’s get together and do something, okay?”
Retorting that it would be not only “an absolute honor” but also “a dream come true,” Lewis gave the greenlight to a compelling co-project that fans of either artist would clamor for. The latest episode of Elton John’s RocketHour can be streamed exclusively on Apple Music. Read Dancing Astronaut‘s interview with SG Lewis here.
