“After years as a side player, Gemini Rights (the follow-up to his 2019 debut album Apollo XXI) is a full-fledged declaration of identity made in the spotlight — an opportunity for listeners to further hear what’s entranced and impressed all of his collaborators in those private rooms.” – GQ HYPE

“Lacy is an accomplished producer and writer who has lent his talents to everyone from Vampire Weekend and Kendrick Lamar to Mac Miller and Solange. These artists come to Lacy for a particular blend of genre-defying and densely textured songs that feel like they’re from a different era yet entirely current.” – HIGHSNOBIETY

“Lacy plunders anachronistic musical scenes in the interest of bringing fans together and pursuing his own wide-ranging tastes. The rock songs come with pleading R&B vocals; jazz and psych collide with funk, hip-hop, and Latin jazz. The seamlessness of it all suggests a keen imagination and a deep record collection. I can confirm Steve Lacy knows his shit.” – VULTURE

“At 24, Steve Lacy already has the chops and maturity of a veteran artist. His new record balances emotional dramas, dance grooves, and unabashed lovemaking music — something for everyone.” – THE FADER

“an album that sounds great from top to bottom” – COMPLEX

“Gemini Rights is a 10-song tight collection of rock and R&B, funk and jazz, psyc and hip-hop that’s as warm and airy as the cusp of summer, when Geminis are born.” – ROLLING STONE


Steve Lacy is thrilled to announce a run of North American shows set for this fall in support of his critically acclaimed sophomore album Gemini Rights. The tour, kicking off on October 2nd in Denver, CO, will make its way across the U.S. and Canada, wrapping up with a special hometown show on November 11 at The Greek in Los Angeles, CA. Full dates are listed below. Tickets are available HERE starting this Friday, August 5 at 10AM local time.

Gemini Rights, released on RCA Records, recently scored the acclaimed producer/singer his highest debut on the Billboard 200 at No. 7. The album also found itself atop genre playlists as well; the album debuted at No. 1 on the Top Alternative Albums chart, No. 1 Top Rock Albums,  No. 1 Top Rock & Alternative Albums and No. 3 Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums.


Written, produced, and played pretty much entirely by Steve, Gemini Rights is an incredible leap forward for an artist who has already established himself as a true cultural force. At the ripe old age of 24, Lacy already has a veteran’s resume: Wired Magazine Tech Visionary, Time Magazine Most Influential Teen, Grammy-nominated for his debut album, Apollo XXI, multiple world tours, walked for Virgil Abloh’s first Louis Vuitton show in Paris, gave a TED Talk in NYC, produced a track on Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN (“Pride”) on his iPhone. His list of collaborators is a who’s who of game changing artists, all of whom look to Lacy to bring his signature brand of cool to their sonic table: people like Tyler the Creator, Solange, J.Cole, Vampire Weekend, Dirty Projectors, Kali Uchis, Thundercat, and Mac Miller, not to mention his guitar, bass, songwriting, and production with his bandmates THE INTERNET. His song “Dark Red,” which he literally made on his iPhone, went platinum earlier this year.

None of this will prepare you for the sprawl and scope of Gemini Rights, however. Like Lacy himself, the record is an amalgamation of a crazy array of references and influences – everything from Caetono Veloso to Andre 3000’s The Love Below to the Beatles to Sly Stone to his friends/band mates in THE INTERNET and much more. Processing his first real heartbreak of his early 20s, Gemini Rights explodes with emotional breadth, with some songs calling out his ex (see: the first lines of album opener “Static” – “Baby you got somethin’ in your nose / sniffin’ that K, did you fill the hole?”) to others fully lamenting the loss (“Buttons”) and bouncing back with indignance (“Sunshine” featuring glorious vocals by Fousheé) and more. It is an album that’s savage, hilarious, tender, sexy, gender fluid, heartbroken, forthright, polyamorous, full of longing, and wears its heart on its sleeve in the best ways possible. Like its title, it is dichotomous but singular, and you will not hear another album like it in 2022.
