Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Bruce Springsteen’s Birthday. Lucy Dacus continues on her celebration of national holidays with another cover. ‘In The Air Tonight‘ is released ahead of Hallow’s Eve.
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.”
