New Release: Lucy Dacus – In The Air Tonight

Lucy Dacus’s 2019 EP will be released on November 8th!

Following her acclaimed Holiday-themed singles ‘La Vie En Rose’, ‘My Mother & I’, ‘Forever Half Mast’ and most recently ‘Dancing In The Dark’, today’s EP announcement comes with a new Halloween-inspired cover of Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’.

Take a listen below…

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’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. The full list of tour dates can be found below.
