Watch the video for the album's lead single, 'Hot & Heavy', below.
Following the release of her acclaimed sophomore album, Historian, in 2018, Lucy Dacus has revealed that her highly anticipated follow-up, Home Video, is set to arrive on June 25, via Matador. Alongside the announcement, the acclaimed American singer-songwriter has shared the project's lead single, 'Hot & Heavy'.
Home Video is described as an "interrogation of [Lucy's] coming-of-age years in Richmond, Virginia" – capturing "that specific moment in time growing up where emotions and relationships start becoming more complex."
Her new single, 'Hot & Heavy', follows the release of live favourite 'Thumbs' last month.
“I thought I was writing ‘Hot & Heavy’ about an old friend, but I realised along the way that it was just about me outgrowing past versions of myself,” Lucy explains in a statement. “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.”
The accompanying self-directed video was shot in the historic Byrd Theatre in Richmond, where Lucy often watched movies during her adolescent years. Take a look below:
