Lucy Dacus is celebrating Halloween with an eerie cover of ‘In The Air Tonight’.
“[It’s] perhaps the best eerie bop of all time, and certainly the best drum fill,” says Lucy. “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.”
It’s the latest song in her ‘2019’ song series, following on from tributes to the 4th of July, US Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and more as part of a run of songs commemorating key dates through the year.
The tracks will be compiled into an EP – along with a cover of ‘Last Christmas’, and an original ode to New Years titled ‘Fools Gold’ – for release on 8th November.
