This year, Lucy Dacus has treated her fans to a string of singles that have personal meaning for the singer songwriter. With these songs placed together on her upcoming EP 2019, Dacus has released a new cover song that’s ready for the holidays. Taking on the Wham! classic “Last Christmas,” Dacus speeds things up and makes it her own with each indie rock note.
The distorted guitar and Dacus’ vocals are quick and snappy but they work so well here. The verse has Dacus slowing things up a bit and almost talk singing among the riffs before speeding things up for the chorus. It’s upbeat, it shows yet another side to the talented artist and gives you a little holiday cheer in the process.
“Last Christmas” is available to stream on all platforms. 2019 is available to preorder directly from Matador Records on multiple formats ahead of its November 08 release. Lucy Dacus is on tour tonight at Delmar Hall in St. Louis, MO until March 06 at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. Her complete tour schedule is available here.
