SG Lewis Collaborates with Charlotte Day Wilson and Channel Tres on Euphoric Disco-Style New Single, “Fever Dreamer,” Released Ahead of Forthcoming Second Studio Album
While the Northern hemisphere may be in the midst of winter, the days are indeed getting longer and festival season is right around the corner – make sure you check out what is in store for 2023 so far – so it makes sense that a timeless dancefloor anthem single from SG Lewis, featuring Charlotte Day Wilson and Channel Tres, should signal the start of an exciting January for SG Lewis. On the heels of his SOLD OUT North American tour, which included Brooklyn’s iconic Brooklyn Mirage and a landmark show at the legendary Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, the British singer-songwriter, producer, and DJ releases “Fever Dreamer,” the final track to arrive before his highly anticipated second studio album, AudioLust & HigherLove, due on Friday, January 27, via Astralwerks. SG Lewis is also slated to perform on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on January 18 at 11:35 pm / 10:35 pm central.
“Fever Dreamer” is a tantalizing union of propulsive percussion and an orchestral hum that gives way to a disco-style refrain. Warbled and fluttering synths lead listeners into a dream-like soundscape that is punctuated by a driving bassline and Charlotte’s grounding and hypnotizing vocals. It’s impossible to not feel the rhythms flow through your body. This track, seduction in pop form, is elevated by Channel Tres’s profoundly smooth vocals – you’re drawn in further to the effortlessly ecstatic energy.
“Fever Dreamer” is the last taste of AudioLust & HigherLove before its release in 17 days, and a song about all-consuming admiration for someone. I’ve been a fan of Charlotte’s music for ages now, and have wanted to work on something forever. We met up at my studio in LA, and ‘Fever Dreamer’ was the first idea we started work on. Channel and I work out of the same studios in LA a lot, and he was working in the room above around the time of the Charlotte session. One day he popped his head into the studio, heard the demo of ‘Fever Dreamer,’ and immediately started working on the missing second verse.

Later this month, SG Lewis will release his second studio album, in which he builds on the kaleidoscopic future-disco of his debut album, times, in an expansive and ambitious record made of two halves. On one end of the spectrum, he crafts the kind of nocturnal bangers that dancefloors, underground raves, pool parties, and festivals subsist on. On the other end, he accesses a higher level of timeless pop ecstasy anchored by just the right amount of breezy hook-laden rock, organic instrumentation, and vocal eloquence. He suits one mood to the adrenaline rush of your wildest night out, and he tailors another to the blissful ride home at sunrise. It’s a diverse collection of classic but deeply contemporary cuts from one of the richest production talents of the last decade and includes a blockbuster collection of guests including the likes of today’s featured artists Channel Tres and Charlotte Day Wilson, as well as Tove Lo, Ty Dolla $ign and Lucky Daye—all alongside SG’s own vocals which are featured more prominently than ever before.
