Lucy Dacus presents ‘Thumbs Again’ – a ‘Thumbs’ reimagining

Before there was news of Home Video, an album which captured the complexities of Lucy Dacus’ formative years growing up in Richmond, VA, leading it to be described alternately as “a triumph” (Sunday Times) and “… a record with a rich storytelling impulse that could easily have seen it released as a written memoir in a parallel reality” (i-D), Lucy presented the long-awaited ‘Thumbs’ to the world. Debuted on tour in 2018 while on the road with boygenius, ‘Thumbs’ became a fan favourite, immediately and deeply impacting audiences: “Depending on what you’ve been through in your life, those words might leave you weeping in public, too,” commented Stereogum.

Following last week’s performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy FallonLucy now releases a full-band version of the arresting original, titled ‘Thumbs Again’. Here, the simple instrumental backbone of ‘Thumbs’ is filled out with electric guitar, synth, and drums and is how many have heard the song on Lucy’s recent tour.
