In The Air Tonight
by Lucy Dacus
Finally I had time to kick off #Spooktober for my account.

From this morning's news mail from Matador Records:
Lucy Dacus’s ‘2019’ EP compiling her series of holiday-themed singles will be released on November 8th. Following “La Vie En Rose” ( https://www.godsjukebox.com/mikecarp/lucy-dacus-la-vie-en-rose/ ), “My Mother & I” ( https://www.godsjukebox.com/volta/lucy-dacus-my-mother-and-i/ ), “Forever Half Mast” and most recently “Dancing In The Dark” ( https://www.godsjukebox.com/phillipsmark/lucy-dacus-dancing-in-the-dark-springsteen-cover/ ), today’s EP announcement comes with a new Halloween-inspired cover of Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’. Lucy’s ‘2019’ EP will feature two more songs celebrating the winter holidays – a cover of “Last Christmas” and an original ode to New Years titled “Fool's Gold”.

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.”

Lucy is on tour. From next week until early Januari, she has been booked for almost 30 gigs. Unfortunately all of those shows are in the USA. No European tour has been planned yet.
