Seven Lions celebrates a decade of music with compilation album, documentary series
Seven Lions is officially celebrating a decade of music. Although his first unofficial production, “Deep Divide,” is still up on SoundCloud to this day, his first formal release came on March 12, 2012 after he was announced as the victor of Above & Beyond‘s remix competition for their song “You Got To Let Go” with Zoë Johnston. The rest, as they say, is history.
To celebrate, Seven Lions has released a special compilation album via Dancing Astronaut‘s 2021 Label of the Year, Ophelia Records. Titled 10 Years of Seven Lions, the LP includes classics like 2014’s “World’s Apart,” 2016’s “Rush Over Me” and 2018’s “First Time.” Also included are two brand new takes fof “The Blood” (Abraxis Remix) and an acoustic version of “Rush Over Me,” performed by HALIENE.
The compilation isn’t the only means by which Seven Lions is paying tribute to the 10-year mark of his career; he will also be putting out a four-part documentary, 10 Years of Seven Lions, on YouTube. The first part recounts his humble beginnings, when he was releasing music under his real name (Jeff Montalvo) before ultimately adopting the name “Seven Lions” and winning the remix competition, two moves that would forever change the course of his career.
