Acclaimed producer, singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lido has released his new single “Rise” today via all digital and streaming platforms. Boasting an array of fluttering pop hooks, the infectious new track delivers Lido’s signature brand of artful production, and marks the third installment from his highly anticipated new album PEDER, set for release on September 18th on Because Music.
A groundbreaking concept album in the making, PEDER tells a story from the perspective of a boy, born on a spaceship without music. The “Rise” music video marks a new chapter in that story, where the boy leaves his spaceship for the first time in search of music, only to be exposed to a whole new world of possibilities. Stumbling upon a variety of different instruments, it is on this distant planet at sunrise, where he finds his love for music and creativity. Lyrics from “Rise” capture this unique vision and storytelling.
Raking in over 1-million listeners per month on Spotify, Lido’s trajectory as a solo artist continues to climb. While slowly amassing a significant fanbase, he continues to collaborate with a long list of modern superstars including Halsey, Chance The Rapper, Banks, Jaden Smith, JoJo and Skrillex to name a few. Recently, Lido produced on JoJo’s latest effort good to know, which hit #1 on Billboard’s R&B’s album chart; and he produced six tracks on Halsey’s 2020 album, Manic, which ranked at #2 on the Billboard Top 200.
