Marking the final instalment from her 2019 EP, out November 8th on Matador Records, Lucy Dacus has shared New Years-inspired original song “Fool’s Gold”

An arresting showcase of Dacus’ emotionally incisive songwriting, “Fool’s Gold” sees rhythmic acoustic guitar and Lucy’s crystalline vocals sketch with poignant brushstrokes the latent ambiguity and soul-searching that often accompanies this period of the year, moving deftly to a chorus of goosebumps-inducing emotional gravitas.

“I started writing ‘Fool’s Gold’ the moment after the last person left a New Year’s Eve party I hosted in 2018,” says Dacus, “I did what I said – drank the last of the champagne alone, felt anxious, and locked the door behind everyone. New Year’s has grown to be my favorite holiday, and this may be my favorite song on the EP.”

Dacus performed the song live in session for Seattle’s KEXP, who exclusively premiered the track. Watch the performance below :
