Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated, critically acclaimed singer and songwriter Gallant shares his new single “Crimes.” Get it HERE via Mind of a Genius / Warner Records.
Zane Lowe exclusively premiered the Stint-produced song as his latest “World Record” on Apple Music’s Beats 1. Lowe praised Gallant for “deliberately finding his voice” and “trying new things” while describing “Crimes” as “soulful” and “pure.”
“Crimes” spotlights the nuances of Gallant’s signature soulful alternative R&B style with cinematic production and another show-stopping vocal performance. It arrives on the heels of “Sharpest Edges.” The music video for the latter recently premiered on VMan. The song also attracted widespread acclaim from Billboard to Complex and Consequence of Sound. The New York Times wrote, “The pleasurable payoff is in the music, harking back to the 1980s era of Michael Jackson’s vocal harmonies and Prince’s synthesizers, all sweet, glassy smoothness.”
Gallant joins Chance the Rapper, Estelle, James Fauntleroy and more as a musical contributor to Steven Universe The Movie—the musical version of the Cartoon Network show due in the fall.
Later this year, Gallant returns with the follow-up album to 2016’s universally acclaimed full-length debut, Ology.
