TWIN SHADOW – ECLIPSE
Twin Shadow (George Lewis Jr.)’s third album, Eclipse, was recorded in a quiet chapel in Hollywood Forever cemetery and marks the Dominican-born, Florida-bred artist’s major label debut. Rolling Stone said, “Eclipse is an album that’s self-assured and unrestrained,” and Entertainment Weekly writes, “Lewis’ seductive voice provides irresistible tether.” After a life-threatening bus accident this past April, which Lewis spoke about on NPR’s All Things Considered, the band embarked on a headlining Night Rally Tour, stopping at Fashion Week (read Lewis’ NY Times ‘Sunday Styles’ Cover Story). Twin Shadow also performed ‘To The Top‘ on The Late Late Show with James Corden. Other highlights are ‘I’m Ready‘ and ‘Old Love/New Love.’

Their anthemic song ‘Weekend‘ appeared on both pop and alternative radio Top 40 charts, and they made their late night television debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
