Lucy Dacus has unveiled a new song entitled “My Mother & I” in honor of both Mother’s Day and Taurus Season. Dacus’ original composition is the second release in a series of 2019 holiday songs.

The series started ahead of Valentine’s Day, when Dacus shared her rendition of “La Vie En Rose.” Additional tunes are expected in celebration of Independence Day, Bruce Springsteen’s Birthday, Halloween, Christmas and New Year’s.

Read Lucy’s statement about the song below:

“Being adopted has encouraged me to consider what mothers pass on through blood and body, and what they impart in the way of socialization and context. We — daughters, and all children — easily inherit the shame and fear of our mothers, but also the pride, self-assurance, and lessons of love. This song focuses on body image and the distinction between the body and the soul, which I can hardly claim to have clarity about to this day. I also reflect on traits my mother and I share as Taurean women- how we are steadfast but headstrong, empathetic but grounded, and dedicated to finding and giving reliable love and comfort.”
