Out Tomorrow On Nettwerk

Luke Sital-Singh Offers Interesting And Cathartic (NPR - The World) Meditations On Fresh Starts And California Dreams With New Album Dressing Like A Stranger



Luke Sital-Singh will release Dressing Like A Stranger tomorrow (September 2), an eleven-song collection penned by the London-born songwriter as he moved halfway across the globe to Los Angeles just before the world shut down. Throughout Dressing Like A Stranger (his Nettwerk debut), we see Sital-Singh take stock of newfound change on many fronts: distance from loved ones ("Rather Be" - a stunning duet with multi-platinum star Christina Perri), the complexities of belief ("Me & God" - named a Best Song Of The Week selection by WNYC upon its release) and, most importantly, his quest to find optimism even on the darkest of days ("Summer Somewhere"). Through it all, Sital-Singh shines with perhaps his most celebrated work to date:

"There is nothing but talent on display...a special experience." - Forbes 

"Undeniably easy to listen to, it promises great things to come." - Atwood

"Amidst silken vocal harmonies, Sital-Singh talks, laughs, sings, and rages...he narrates his journey with empathy and wit." - Under The Radar

"A testament to a man and his music, which seems to live outside time and place. What he has crafted is something quite exceptional." - Folk Radio, UK

"Moving and hushed...sparkled with Sital-Singh's honesty...these songs are soothing because Sital-Singh handles his uncertainties with grace and gentleness." - No Depression

A songwriter typically known for collaboration, Sital-Singh wrote Dressing Like A Stranger in relative isolation in Los Angeles - allowing him to mine his innermost thoughts more than ever, while using those intimate explorations to stay afloat through tumultuous times. With the help of two new LA-based musical partners - his fellow British national Dan Croll and a rubber bridge guitar from the city's Old Style Guitar Shop - Sital-Singh emerged with what he describes as "my most personal record yet."

In addition to his work with Croll and Perri, the new album also includes a collaboration between Sital-Singh and frequent songwriting partner Ben Cramer (Old Sea Brigade) - "Can't Get High" - which follows up the pair's 2020 collaborative EP All The Ways You Sing In The Dark (and its breakout single "Call Me When You Land," which boasts over 20 million Spotify streams to date). Sital-Singh and Old Sea Brigade will also tour North America together this fall, with dates to be announced soon. Before that, Luke will continue on his month-long European run with labelmate Passenger, and he'll return home to the UK for a string of headlining dates in late September and early October.
