A few weeks back, Lucy Dacus posted out VHS tapes to fans to build up to a new single, and now the song’s online too.

Titled ‘Thumbs’, the track is a fan fave following appearances during live performances since 2018.

Written during a 15-minute car ride to dinner in Nashville, Lucy explains: “Like most songs I write, I wasn’t expecting it and it made me feel weird, almost sick.

“It tells the story of a day I had with a friend during our freshman year of college, a significant day, but not one that I had thought of for years. I started playing it live a month or so later during the boygenius tour after Phoebe and Julien encouraged me to.

“I knew I wanted a long time to get used to playing it since it made me feel shaky, so I ended sets with it for about half the shows I played in 2019. Before I played it, I would ask the audience to please not record it, a request that seems to have been respected, which I’m grateful for.”
