    It has been a full decade since Glenn Lewis burst onto the music scene with the excellent album, World Outside My Window, and the Stevie Wonder-influenced hit, "Don't You Forget It." But we didn’t forget the Canadian soul man, even as we waited in frustration for more.

    Glenn finally returned to the scene in 2013 with his long-overdue sophomore album Moment of Truth. Thanks to the power of social media his single “Closer” became an online sensation after be played on the hit reality show Love & Hip-Hop and fans expressed their love for the song with an overwhelming response on Twitter, helping the record reach No. 1 on Amazon’s R&B chart.

    The track has received a second life with a smooth, soulful remix by Dutch DJ/Producer and Remixer The Packxsz. It’s a nice new look for the single and it is our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below and tell us what you think!
