American singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus has announced the release of her forthcoming album Home Video, which is set for a June 25 release via Matador Records. Dacus has also announced a September and October North American tour in support of the highly anticipated upcoming release. The tour will stop in Los Angeles at The Theatre at Ace Hotel on September 24, 2021. Indie artist Bachelor, made up of members from Jay Som and Palehound, is slated to open for her Los Angeles date.
Home Video will be the follow-up to 2018’s Historian and her 2016 debut No Burden. Dacus recently debuted her newest track complete with music video for “Hot & Heavy,” which she recently performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Of the song, Dacus shared this statement in a press release: “I thought I was writing ‘Hot & Heavy’ about an old friend, but I realized along the way that it was just about me outgrowing past versions of myself. So much of life is submitting to change and saying goodbye even if you don’t want to. Now whenever I go to places that used to be significant to me, it feels like trespassing the past. I know that the teen version of me wouldn’t approve of me now, and that’s embarrassing and a little bit heartbreaking, even if I know intellectually that I like my life and who I am.”
Although the album isn’t out just yet, press releases are confirming that “Home Video is a gorgeous example of the transformative power of vulnerability. Dacus’s voice, both audible and on the page, has a healer’s power to soothe and ground and reckon. This album not only propels Dacus forward as a songwriter, but also props her up as one of the most effective storytellers of her generation.” Grab your tickets and get ready to hear some great new music from Lucy Dacus!
