Lucy Dacus has dropped the latest song in her ‘2019’ song series.
Released to mark the 4th of July, ‘Forever Half Mast’ follows on from tributes to US Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day as part of a run of songs commemorating key dates through the year.
“There is a daily dissonance one endures as an American wherein much of our joy is counterweighted by shame, where much of our pride lives in tandem with injustice and suffering,” she explains.
“‘Forever Half Mast’ is about confronting this unavoidable culpability as an American citizen and consumer. Instead of allowing this guilt to paralyze us, we should try to let it influence us in positive ways.”
