Brooklyn-based indie pop stars Lucius will be accompanying Pink Floyd cofounder Roger Waters on his U.S. tour this summer. They’ve been practicing for the gig, and they sound pretty fantastic (see above).

Lucius  co-founders and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig contributed to Waters’ new album Is This The Life We Really Want?, which is due out June 2. Rogers made our list of the 100 Best Living Songwriters, and his recent single “Smell the Roses” is “particularly reminiscent of material from mid-’70s classics Wish You Were Here and Animals.” The album is his first solo effort in 25 years. With Wolfe and Laessig’s vocal prowess, it’s expected to be an album worth listening to.

While the duo is prolific in collaborative efforts, Lucius as a band have been working on a new record of their own. Their single “Million Dollar Secret” premiered on an episode of HBO’s Girls. The band says the song is about “the idea of keeping something for yourself, and trying to maintain that while still giving it to a listener.”

Watch Lucius perform Pink Floyd’s “The Great Gig In The Sky” above at a public dress rehearsal for the tour. You can also check out Waters’ U.S. tour dates below, along with a Lucius Paste session live from our studio.
