Earlier this year, Steve Lacy dropped off his six-track debut EP Steve Lacy's Demo and although the project is less than 15 minutes long, the young guitarist left a strong impression with a variety of sounds and ideas. The EP was made entirely on Lacy's iPhone in GarageBand and kicked off a incredible run that included a tour and him working with superstars like Kendrick Lamar and more.
Now, for the first time since the release of the debut project, Lacy is back with new music. Doing it "just cause," the 18-year-old artist and producer dropped "4Real" and threw a curveball at fans expecting more of what we got from the debut release. The new record is a step away from the jazz-influenced tracks we've heard in his previous works and gives more of a psychedelic feel that you would get from albums like Prince's 1986 release Parade.
