Lucy Dacus has announced a new EP.

The song series ‘2019’ will see a release later in the year, and will feature a selection of covers and original songs tied to specific holidays: Valentines Day, Mother’s Day, Taurus Season, American Independence Day, Bruce Springsteen’s birthday, Halloween, Christmas and New Year’s.

The first cut is Dacus’ take on Edith Piaf’s La Vie En Rose, a bilingual upbeat version of the classic song, with her soothing vocals over a charming piano. Of it, Dacus noted:

“From the first time I heard it, I thought ‘La Vie En Rose’ was a perfect song. Hearing it, I knew that, one day, I would fall in love. I want someone to listen to this while running at top speed to the doorstep of the person they adore, ready to profess their deep, undying love. (PS, there’s a longer story about singing this song as a duet with my middle school janitor, but it is not concise).”

Dacus released her second album ‘Historian’ last year, and spent 2018 touring over the US, Europe and the UK both solo and as Boygenius with Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker. She has extensive live plans for spring in the US and Australia, and will appear at various festivals in the summer, including Primavera Sound, Roskilde and Best Kept Secret.

Pass The Baton: Five Seminal Festival Moments
Thu 30 May 2019
Every festival season brings with it the same hopes and fears. Most of them are toilet-related, naturally, but the optimists among us are always chasing that era-defining high. A great set in perfect surroundings with the correct lubricants (or none at all) can be transcendental, fuelling years of pub reminiscing and I-was-there-whens.

td#right {display:none !important;} SUMMER. IS. FINALLY. HERE.
