Lucy Dacus - 2019

MATADOR RECORDS

  • £13.99


2019 is a collection of seven original and cover songs which were released by Lucy Dacus online during the year 2019. Recorded in here-and-there studio spurts, each release marked specific holidays, including Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day (and Taurus season!), Independence Day, Bruce Springsteen’s Birthday, Halloween (an incredibly disconcerting version of Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'), Christmas and New Year. 

Lucy Dacus uses her gift as a songwriter to help understand and cope with the world around her, including making sense of national holidays, often more geared towards social media boasts and manufactured consumerism than authentic celebration. “What is going on,” she asks herself on these days, retreating from the heightened expectations of holidays to figure out what to make of them and to find her own meaning. “I’ve collected some songs from trying to answer that question,” she says, and “this EP seems like the right place to put them next to each other. These songs are self-contained, not indicative of a new direction, just a willingness to do something different and sometimes even out of character.” 

This EP is issued as a one-off pressing alongside the release of Dacus' second full length album, Historian
