Shred Sensation Sophie Lloyd has released new original music which features Inglorious frontman Nathan James and previews Imposter Syndrome, which is expected to arrive next year.
To preview the effort – and to usher in the next stage of her electric guitar-playing career – the Kiesel-endorsed artist has shared the record’s lead single, Do or Die, for which she’s recruited Inglorious frontman, Nathan James.
Since the music for Do or Die was written by Lloyd, it’s no surprise the guitar work on display is first class. Having honed her craft with various shred reimaginings of popular tracks – such as Britney Spears’ Toxic and Beethoven’s 5th Symphony – Lloyd’s new single sees her let loose on her own material, flexing both her compositional chops and six-string skills.
For the single, Lloyd and James were joined by bassist Adam Da Rat and drummer Christopher Painter. Romesh Dodangoda, whose credits include Nova Twins, Bring Me The Horizon, and Motörhead, was in charge of production.
Though there’s no official release date, Imposter Syndrome will land sometime next year, and will see Lloyd team up with “some impressive names from the world of rock”. A music video for Do or Die will also be released next Friday (November 25).
Do or Die is available to stream(opens in a new tab) on all digital platforms now.
Lloyd turns her attention to her own solo career after having spent the past few months working with Machine Gun Kelly, who recruited her for his 2022 Mainstream Sellout tour.
