SG Lewis’ New Double-Single Was Inspired By Daft Punk’s “Discovery”

Disco darling SG Lewis has returned with the music industry's equivalent of a double feature: a banging double A-side single. Marking his debut on dance music industry heavyweight Astralwerks, "Missing You" and "Something About Your Love" are out now.
