Lucy Dacus’s 2019 EP will be released on November 8th on Matador Records and can be pre-ordered HERE. Following her acclaimed Holiday-themed singles ‘La Vie En Rose’, ‘My Mother & I’, ‘Forever Half Mast’ and most recently ‘Dancing In The Dark’, which was the most added single at college radio on its week of release, today’s EP announcement comes with a new Halloween-inspired cover of Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’, which can be heard HERE. Lucy’s 2019 EP will feature two more tracks celebrating the winter holidays – a cover of ‘Last Christmas’ and an original ode to New Years titled ‘Fools Gold’.

In this spirited cover, Lucy revamps ‘In The Air Tonight’ into a Halloween anthem by magnifying the original song’s ominous undertones, bringing the mythology behind Phil Collins’ song to the forefront with haunting vocals and penetrating reverb. In Lucy’s own words, “perhaps the best eerie bop of all time, and certainly the best drum fill. The image in the first verse is so unsettling- watching someone watch someone drown without moving to save them. People have wondered if this is something Phil Collins really witnessed, but the song is actually just a manifestation of his anger and frustration about his divorce. It’s tense, dark, and so much fun, as a good Halloween should be. This was the most fun I’ve ever had in a studio.” 

Dacus has continued to go from strength to strength in 2019 – touring across Australia, Europe and North America, appearing at festivals including Primavera, Best Kept Secret and Hopscotch, making her Austin City Limits debut, opening for Mitski at two Central Park Summer Stage shows, and playing her biggest headlines to date, including a sold-out show at London’s EartH. Her writing career is taking off, with a recently published op-ed in the New York Times on the anniversary of Woodstock and another in Vanity Fair on Bruce Springsteen’s legacy. She expounded the unique approach of the 2019 song series in a recent interview with Spotify For Artists, and the release was also highlighted on The New York Times’ Fall Preview. Dacus’s North American headline fall tour continues with a number of Midwest and West Coast dates before she heads East again, making a stop in Mexico City for Corona Capital.
