Lucius Announce New Album and Tour, Share Video for New Song “Next to Normal”: Watch

Lucius have announced their first new album since 2016’s Good Grief. Second Nature is out April 8. The album was produced by Dave Cobb and Brandi Carlile, and it features the new single “Next to Normal.” The band have also announced a tour that includes dates with Brandi Carlile. Watch the song’s new music video and the band’s tour dates below.

The album, recorded at Nashville’s storied RCA Studio A, features contributions from Drew Erickson, Rob Moose, and Gabriel Cabezas, plus backing vocals from Carlile and Sheryl Crow. The album arrives after the band’s recent collaboration with the War on Drugs.

“It is a record that begs you not to sit in the difficult moments, but to dance through them,” said Lucius’ Jess Wolfe in a statement. “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.”
