Sondre Lerche has enlisted CHAI for a new song called ‘Summer in Reverse’, the latest preview of his forthcoming double album Avatars of Love. Check out its music video below.
“This song was written January 1, 2021, so it’s a bit of a hangover song really. A hangover jam about trying to unhook and ready yourself for a new year through facing some brutal truths,” Lerche explained in a statement. “I wanted someone else to sing the pre-choruses, kind of like a soft Greek chorus and I had just heard and loved ‘Donuts Mind If I Do’ by CHAI, so I reached out. I’ve been immensely inspired by Japanese city pop and ambient New Age, and I love how the two go hand in hand somehow. I was thrilled to have some company on the song, so it didn’t feel so pathetic and sad!”
Avatars of Love is due out on April 1 via PLZ/InGrooves. So far, Lerche has unveiled the singles ‘Dead of the Night’, ‘Cut’, ‘Turns Out I’m Sentimental After All’.
