Last month, Son Lux have released Tomorrows I, the first album in a three-volume body of work, which will unfurl over the coming year through City Slang. Today, the group have shared a rework of album track “Only” with iconic soul singer William Bell taking the vocal lead.
“Only (Chasing You)” explores the intangible and temporal nature of identity and relationships. It reflects on the blurring of time passing and evolving from small to increments to entire lifetimes, and throughout, an increasing feeling of losing, not gaining, identity. Bell’s delivery contends with this elasticity, exclaiming, “When you took me from the days, you took me from the years.”
