Armada Music has released Warehouse Summer, the first posthumous album from i_o, the late DJ and producer born Garrett Falls Lockhart. The 14-track record features vocals from the Canadian singer-songwriter Lights. Check it out below.

Of the collaboration, Lights said in a statement:

This is a body of work that I’m immensely proud of and am very emotionally connected to. Garrett was endlessly talented and he inspired me to give my all and be my best. It’s safe to say making this album with him was life changing. I hope you immerse yourself in it, there is a lot to feel in Warehouse Summer.

Lockhart died at the age of 30 after a “sudden and fatal arrhythmia” stemming from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis—an autoimmune disorder that involves chronic thyroid inflammation. He had released a trilogy of EPs called 444 earlier that year. In 2019, he collaborated with Grimes on her Miss Anthropocene track “Violence.”

In an additional statement, Lockhart’s family said:

We’d like to thank all who have patiently and lovingly stood by waiting for us, G’s family, to say yes to releasing these last tracks.

Thank you to the i_o management for bringing together all the teams necessary to release these last tracks of music produced by Garrett & Lights. We are grateful to them and so many others for their regular “check-ins” with us, allowing us time and space to miss him and grieve his absence. We loved hearing from so many, as each of us remember Garrett in different ways. Some of your stories made us laugh or smile, others made us cry, for it is in those stories we relived much of what Garrett was about as a person and in the many ways his life impacted each of us.

Thank you for sharing yourselves with us, it has truly helped in the healing. We hope with this music release there will be healing for others as well. Continue to take gentle care of yourselves and each other, remembering how fragile life can be.

On November 23, 2022 Warehouse Summer, a legacy album, will be released. Tomorrow, we celebrate you.

From the Lockhart Family (Greg & Deb, Chad & Lindsey, Colin & Debbie)
