Lucy Dacus - "Hot & Heavy"

After sharing a new single called "Thumbs" last month, Lucy Dacus has announced her third record, Home Video, and shared another single, "Hot & Heavy."

Following the slow, floating single "Thumbs," Dacus picks up the beats up this one and kick things into gear with a wonderfully rocking tune that sets the bar high for what is to come. It's the album opener and it's a stunner. There's the hum of a synth and Dacus' vocals that warm things up before a guitar strum hits and leads the track into a bouncing, joyous rhythm. Home Video was recorded in Nashville and two of the album's track feature her boygenius bandmates Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers (a trend I hope never goes away). It's another excellent track from Dacus and her voice sounds pristine as ever here. If this is the opener, I can't wait to hear what comes next!

Home Video is out June 25 via Matador.
