Lucy Dacus previews new album with fourth single "Brando"

Lucy Dacus is back with another taster of her upcoming Home Video album in the form of new track "Brando", marking the fourth outing from her highly-anticipated third record.

"Brando", Dacus explains, "refers to a very dramatic friend I had in high school whose whole personality was the media he consumed. He showed me a lot of amazing movies and music, but I think he was more interested in using me as a scrapbook of his own tastes than actually getting to know me. He claimed to know me better than anyone else but I started to feel like all he wanted from me was to be a scene partner in the movie of his life."

The new song is the fourth track to be lifted from Home Video, following earlier releases "VBS", "Hot & Heavy" and "Thumbs".

Home Video will follow Dacus' 2018 second album Historian, and will see Dacus continue the collaborative camaraderie she has with boygenius bandmates Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker, who contribute to two of the songs. Both Dacus and Bridgers contributed to Baker's "Favor" track that featured on her February album Little Oblivions.

Dacus recorded Home Video after returning to Trace Horse Studio in Nashville back in August 2019, and teamed up with friends and collaborators Jacob Blizard, Collin Pastore and Jake Finch to record it.

"Brando" is out now. Lucy Dacus' third album Home Video will be released via Matador on 25 June, and is available to pre-order now.
