Steve Lacy‘s sophomore album, Gemini Rights, is out today via RCA Records. Featuring Fousheé and Matt Martians, the 10-track project contains previously released songs “Mercury,” “Bad Habit,” and “Sunshine.”
Never-heard-before tracks like “Static” and “Cody Freestyle” see the musician opening up about his bisexuality while themes of love appear throughout the project. In the week leading up to the album’s release, the Fousheé-assisted song “Sunshine” came out, seeing the pair’s vocals perfectly blend together over guitar-driven production. Fans of the artists also get to hear a number of other cuts like “Buttons,” “Amber,” and the closing track “Give You The World.”
Gemini Rights marks Lacy’s first full-length project since his 2019 debut album Apollo XXI, cementing his vocal prowess as a solo artist through songs like “N Side” and “Like Me” featuring DAISY WORLD. He also shared The Lo-Fis, a collection of SoundCloud throwaways, leaks, demos, and instrumentals the following year. Despite not releasing much solo work between then, Lacy joined Ravyn Lenae for her new album HYPNOS in addition to producing Brent Faiyaz’s “GRAVITY” and working on Kanye West’s Donda cut “Believe What I Say.”
“Yeah, I feel like I’ve done the work and now I am ready for this. I think I used to be afraid of something like this happening to me,” Steve Lacy spoke with Variety regarding the project. “I’m just judging it on how I feel about it. I know if I feel good about it, then it can only be received good. I put a lot of time and effort into it.”
