Lucy Dacus has dropped another new track, ‘VBS’.
The latest taster of her forthcoming album ‘Home Video’, ‘VBS’ stands for ‘vacation bible school’, and is the third track to come from the record, following-up on previous efforts ‘Hot & Heavy’ and ‘Thumbs’.
Dacus explains: ““VBS” means vacation bible school, and I went to tons of them. It’s where Christian parents send their kids over the winter, spring, or summer breaks from school to get closer to God, maybe learn some outdoor skills, and bring home useless crafts and totems like fruit of the spirit sand art and purity rings. I wrote the song in the van on the way to Nashville to record Home Video after seeing one of those readerboards outside a church advertising a wholesome church camp for kids. I thought about my first boyfriend, who I met at VBS, the resident bad boy who loved Slayer and weed more than Jesus. I took it upon myself to save him, and make him stop doing drugs (with an exception for snorting nutmeg). God, I was so lame.”
So there we go.
‘Home Video’ is set for release on 25th June via Matador. You can check out ‘VBS’ below.
