Lucy Dacus has returned with a new song called ‘Thumbs’. The track, which she wrote in 2018, has since become a fan favorite during her live performances, so much so that it even has its own dedicated Twitter account. Take a listen below.
“Like most songs I write, I wasn’t expecting it and it made me feel weird, almost sick,” Dacus said in a statement. “It tells the story of a day I had with a friend during our freshman year of college, a significant day, but not one that I had thought of for years. I started playing it live a month or so later during the boygenius tour after Phoebe and Julien encouraged me to. I knew I wanted a long time to get used to playing it since it made me feel shaky, so I ended sets with it for about half the shows I played in 2019. Before I played it, I would ask the audience to please not record it, a request that seems to have been respected, which I’m grateful for.”
