Today, Steve Lacy dropped a new track titled “Bad Habit” with an accompanying music video. From his forthcoming album Gemini Rights, the new track marks Lacy’s second release in anticipation of the album’s summer release.
Fused with a funky bassline, smooth tempo and electronic effects, the track discusses regret over a failed love interest. Specifically, Lacy discusses his wish for taking action sooner. “I bite my tongue, it’s a bad habit/Kinda mad that I didn’t take a stab at it/Thought you were too good for me, my dear/Never gave me time of day, my dear/It’s okay, things happen for/Reasons that I think are sure, yeah,” sings Lacy in the song’s chorus.
The music video showcases the Compton-born musician moving around an empty space that switches from one color to the next. Wearing a white shirt with an S on the front and a red target on the back, black pants, black leather boots and black futuristic sunglasses, Lacy’s outfit also appears in his earlier released music video for “Mercury,” in addition to the album’s cover.
Lacy’s sophomore album Gemini Rights is set to release on Friday, July 15. Check out the video and Lacy’s new track above.
