Producer, singer, songwriter and recording artist LIDO has released his new and highly anticipated EP IOU1 via all digital retailers and streaming services on Because Music/Caroline. Get the EP HERE.
Recorded between Los Angeles and Norway and produced by Lido, IOU1 marks LIDO’s first official solo release since 2016’s acclaimed full-length debut effort Everything, and features 5-new tracks including his latest single “Outstanding” as well as two previously released summer singles “3 Million” and “Corner Love”.
The official music video for single “Outstanding” is also out now. The track continues to display Lido’s strengths as a songwriter, vocalist and producer, and fuses together what has become his signature blend of electronica and soul, led by uplifting and reflective lyrics as demonstrated on the song’s hook – “You will be outstanding, On your own girl.” Watch the video now below.
The new EP and music video come on the heels of what has already been a very busy year for Lido. This past July, he produced 3 tracks on Grammy award winning Chance The Rapper’s latest collection of songs, “Work Out”, “Wala Cam”, and “65th and Ingleside,” which followed his highly acclaimed 7-minute project ‘kidsloveghosts,” a re-imagining of Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s latest collaboration ‘Kids See Ghosts,’ hailed byDancing Astronaut as “stunning” and “masterful.” Earlier this year, he produced tracks for Chicago rapper Towkio including his breakout single “Symphony,” which the two performed last February on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
IOU1 is available now on all digital download and streaming platforms.
