After a two-year break, multi-platinum artist Dennis Lloyd is releasing his long-awaited, full-length album Some Days on July 2. The album reflects Lloyd’s wild ride through an even wilder industry, following his astronomical overnight success with his single “Nevermind”—inspired by a breakup, after the Tel Aviv native traveled to Thailand to hone his signature hybrid pop/hip-hop/reggae/rock sound. One billion streams, sudden fame and a whirlwind tour unearthed unexpected trappings; the journey of deep discovery and profound transition is poignantly documented in his new songs.
Fans aren’t hesitant to show Lloyd a warm welcome back: Tel Aviv shows are already selling out, but check out his site for a rebroadcast on July 8.
Lloyd’s first Some Days release, “The Way”, carries an all-important message of curating a balanced, nourishing and sustainable life. “My life has changed dramatically since ‘Nevermind’ blew up everywhere,” he says. “The last tour I had back in 2019 broke something inside of me. I had to take some time off and heal. I finally had the time to process the past five years of my life, ask myself the toughest questions and deal with my deepest feelings and thoughts. I hope my music can help you heal and find the answers you’re looking for.”
Here’s a day in the life of Dennis Lloyd.
