Lucy Dacus has shared a video for new song "Hot & Heavy," the first taste of her upcoming new album Home Video. The album, Dacus's follow-up to 2018 breakout Historian is due June 25 via Matador Records. Scroll down for the Dacus-directed "Hot & Heavy" video.
Home Video also includes "Thumbs," a live favorite Dacus recently shared in its studio form.
Speaking about the new song in a statement, Dacus said: “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.”
Since releasing Historian, Dacus has shared a series of one-off singles including a run of holiday-themed tracks dropped throughout 2019. She also joined forces with Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers, releasing a 2018 EP under the name boygenius.
Home Video tracklist:
"Hot & Heavy"
