“The visible effect made on a surface by pressure”

Lucius release new album, ‘Second Nature’ Alongside new track, ‘Promises’

Lucius today share their highly-anticipated new album, Second Nature. Produced by Dave Cobb and Brandi Carlile, the new LP features ten new tracks, including today’s brilliant focus track ‘Promises’, and previously-released ‘White Lies’‘Next To Normal’‘Heartbursts’, and ‘Dance Around It’. In addition to their work in the band, the renowned duo have recorded with Harry StylesThe War on DrugsSheryl CrowOzzy Osborne and John Legend and toured extensively alongside Roger Waters.

Second Nature is a portrait of singer and songwriters Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe’s shared reflection, chronicling each other’s seismic life shifts—motherhood, divorce, unplanned career pauses—and setting it to music. In Wolfe’s own words, “It is a record that begs you not to sit in the difficult moments, but to dance through them. It touches upon all these stages of grief—and some of that is breakthrough, by the way. Being able to have the full spectrum of the experience that we have had, or that I’ve had in my divorce, or that we had in lockdown, having our careers come to a halt, so to speak. I think you can really hear and feel the spectrum of emotion and hopefully find the joy in the darkness. It does exist. That’s why we made Second Nature and why we wanted it to sound the way it did: our focus was on dancing our way through the darkness.”

Of working on the project Carlile shares, “Lucius has been one of my favorite bands since their first studio album. I kept running into them at festivals and finding myself mystified by their power. This album feels like home to me and anyone growing up surrounded by 80s and 90s pop, but somehow Second Nature is the beginning of a new era—not just for Lucius, but for all of us. We need to get back up on our feet and that’s what this album is insisting we do. This is my first co-production with my dear pal Dave Cobb and I don’t know if I’ve ever been prouder even to witness something let alone get my hands on it. It was an absolute blast.”
