Hot Since 82 & Ed Graves announced the release of a brand new single, “Sinnerman,” which is off Hot Since 82’s debut album Recovery, available to stream/download here.

“Sinnerman” marks Ed Graves’s first release as a debut artist as he provided the lyrics, the vocals, and the guitar riffs to the track.  The track is featured alongside massive collaborations on Hot Since 82’s full-length studio album, Recovery, which includes the likes of Boy George and Rudimental. The album also features a track with Liz Cass, who Graves has worked alonside as well. 

“I was introduced to Daley (Hot Since ’82) via Liz Cass. I’ve been producing and writing for her project for a year now. I recorded the guitars on Daley’s single, which was the first release from ‘Recovery’ called Eye of the Storm (feat. Liz Cass) — ‘Sinnerman’ came about when Daley got in touch to make some more music together. He had this idea he sent over and I immediately felt inspired – I sent him back over a demo vocal for ‘Sinnerman’ and he loved it. We made the tune during the Covid lockdown and the idea of a sinner man came from a feeling of a broken system and those in control that take advantage from a standpoint of greed. I later added some guitars on the track and we called my friend Oli Jacobs to mix the production.”
