NEW MUSIC: LUCIUS | DANCE AROUND IT (FEAT. BRANDI CARLILE & SHERYL CROW)
Acclaimed indie-pop band Lucius' has dropped a new song, "Dance Around It," featuring special guests Brandi Carlile and Sheryl Crow, along with debuting the official music video. Reflecting on the song, Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe share, "In many ways 'Dance Around It' cracked the intention for the entire record; to dance through the darkness. To take what may have been isolating and internal, and instead, make it loud, and put it on display - give it legs to dance. When we brought it to the studio, we asked our dear friends and collaborators (pinch me) Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile to sing with us; they were so present and instrumental during the writing and recording of our record - and hearing them sing on this track felt like dancing through that last part of a dark tunnel." "Dance Around It" is the latest song unveiled from Lucius' anticipated new album, "Second Nature," which will be released April 8 on Mom + Pop Music (U.S. and Mexico), Dine Alone (Canada), Second Nature Records/Secretly Distribution (RoW). Ahead of the release, the band has shared three additional album tracks: "Heartbursts," "White Lies," and "Next To Normal," of which Paste praises, "hyper-catchy choruses...with a timeless dance groove that does anything but overstay its welcome." In celebration of the new music, the band will embark on an extensive North American headline tour this spring, followed by a series of European shows in September.
