After a whirlwind 2019, which saw Eric Luttrell release his acclaimed debut solo album “Into Clouds” on Anjunadeep, the prolific San Francisco native makes a swift return to the UK imprint with his second LP “Lucky Ones.” Eric will also embark on his most extensive headline tour to date, with 23 shows across North America through summer.
First breaking into electronic music as part of the OWSLA-affiliated trio The M Machine, Eric launched his solo project in 2016 with the widely supported “Need You” EP, while Anjunadeep catalog favorites “Generate” EP and Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World “Intergalactic Plastic” followed in quick succession. Now with his highly-praised debut album under his belt, which reached #2 on iTunes Dance Album charts in USA and Canada and #8 in the Official UK Dance Album Charts, Luttrell’s unique brand of quirky melodic house and techno has cemented his name as one of the scenes most hotly tipped talents; opening doors to working with Moby, Tycho, Jai Wolf, What So Not and Blossoms, all of whom commissioned remixes from Eric.
Whereas “Into Clouds” examined the transitional periods of life, and was reflective of Eric’s mindset at the time of recording, “Lucky Ones” is a celebration. Anchored in themes of gratitude, the LP is a collection of 11 meticulously crafted cuts which see him draw from a deep pool of personal influences, including the likes of The Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana and The Prodigy, his love for San Francisco and Burning Man, time spent as a student in Berlin, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, and even winning the US TV game show, The Price Is Right.
“I am incredibly lucky to have such enthusiastic and amazing support behind this project and this album is dedicated to all of my fans and listeners. I hope the songs on this album make you smile, make you dance and most of all, make you feel all the feels. Enjoy!”—Eric Luttrell
“Lucky Ones” is available now via Anjunadeep, digitally, on CD and on limited edition 2×12” Vinyl with Luttrell motif die-cut slipcase. Get it here.
