Leon Thomas has been prepping fans for his debut album for over a year, but he’s been working toward this moment all his life. Now the time has finally come for the singer, songwriter, producer and actor to drop his album Electric Dusk on Friday, August 18th. To get everyone ready for the release, he’s unveiled more details about the project and the “Breaking Point (Remix)” featuring Victoria Monét.
Thomas named Electric Dusk after the longest-running drive-in theatre in Los Angeles, and according to a press release, it’s the part-time thespian’s “love letter to film in addition to the trials and tribulations” he has encountered in recent years. The 12-track album features all four singles – “X-Rated” with Benny The Butcher, “Love Jones” with Ty Dolla $ign, “Breaking Point” and “Crash & Burn” – and the new remix.
Leon and Victoria’s “Breaking Point (Remix)” builds on the emotion of the original. Now a duet, both artists share their poetic side of the relationship’s demise. His verses remain intact while she comes through with a fresh second verse. The lyric, “By now we know we are both past the point of healing,” encapsulates her feelings about their situation. Although they may be on the outs, their voices blend beautifully together to create another masterpiece.
Look for more audio excellence from Leon Thomas when Electric Dusk arrives. He’s looking forward to its release as much as we are. “This album took a very long time to make,” he stated in its accompanying trailer. “It just really means a lot to me that people are finally going to be able to kinda journey through my brain musically. I’m excited for folks to hear this album.”
Electric Dusk will be released on Ty Dolla $ign’s EZMNY Records label in association with Motown Records and is currently available for pre-save/pre-add on various digital music platforms. Leon Thomas will soon join Ty on his upcoming More Motion Less Emotion Tour kicking off in September. View the album’s abstract cover art and tracklist below.
