Lucy Dacus released a new album, Historian, back in March via Matador. It was our Album of the Week. Now she has announced some new 2019 U.S. tour dates. They mainly encompass February and March and go on sale this Friday, January 14. Check them out below.

Dacus also recently teamed up with fellow singer/songwriters Julien Baker and Phoebe Bridgers to form supergroup Boygenius, whose self-titled debut EP was released in late October via Matador.

Read our interview with Dacus on Historian.

Previously Dacus shared Historian‘s 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 in March 2017. 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.”
