In March 2020, roughly a decade after dropping the first single “Shiny Suit Theory,” Jay Electronica finally dropped his debut album A Written Testimony. In his first music since the release, he joins Grammy and Academy Award winning music producer and songwriter Paul Epworth, UK producer and songwriter Lil Silva, and Dave Bayley of Glass Animals on “Love Galaxy.”
The song is slated to land on Epworth’s forthcoming debut album VOYAGE, set to arrive in the summer. “I was looking for something in the album that felt super familiar, a nostalgic record that feels like coming home,” Epworth says about the track. “I knew I wanted it to sound like I’d sampled an early Jan Hammer record, something like Brian Bennett or Steve Miller Band’s cosmic funk, but chopped and screwed through a Dr Dre filter when he’s referenced records from a similar era.”
