Lucy Dacus released Historian last month via Matador. It was our Album of the Week. Previously she shared its first single and opening track, “Night Shift,” as well as a self-directed video for “Addictions,” and the audio for “Next of Kin.”

Historian is the singer/songwriter’s sophomore album, the follow-up to 2016’s No Burden. No Burden producer Collin Pastore produced the album, which was recorded in Nashville last March. John Congleton mixed the album a few months later.

A previous press release described the album as such: “It is a remarkably assured 10-track statement of intent that finds her unafraid to take on the big questions - the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It’s a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.”

The press release also called Historian “a concept album about cautious optimism in the face of adversity” and said it covers systemic racism, creative burnout, and the death of her grandmother. “It starts out dark and ends hopeful, but it gets darker in between; it goes to the deepest, darkest, place and then breaks,” Dacus says in the press release. “What I’m trying to say throughout the album is that hope survives, even in the face of the worst stuff.”

Dacus also had this to say in the press release: “This is the album I needed to make. Everything after this is a bonus.”
