Lucy Dacus Releases Astrological New Track "My Mother And I"

Lucy Dacus has released another new track from her 2019 holiday songs series, this one titled “My Mother And I” in honor of Mother’s Day and Taurus Season.

Dacus said of the new track’s thoughtful take on genetics and the tender balance of self-image in a statement:

Being adopted has encouraged me to consider what mothers pass on through blood and body, and what they impart in the way of socialization and context. We—daughters, and all children—easily inherit the shame and fear of our mothers, but also the pride, self-assurance, and lessons of love. This song focuses on body image and the distinction between the body and the soul, which I can hardly claim to have clarity about to this day. I also reflect on traits my mother and I share as Taurean women—how we are steadfast but headstrong, empathetic but grounded, and dedicated to finding and giving reliable love and comfort.
