Lucy Dacus Shares New Year’s-Inspired Original ‘Fool’s Gold’


Singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus concludes a year-long series of songs celebrating holidays with the release of “Fool’s Gold.” The latest tune was inspired by New Year’s and will be featured on 2019, an EP due tomorrow (Friday, November 8) via Matador Records.

“I started writing ‘Fool’s Gold’ the moment after the last person left a New Year’s Eve party I hosted in 2018,” explained 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.”
