Published Nov 07, 2019Lucy Dacus has unveiled the final track from her 2019 EP.
"Fool's Gold" comes at the end of a year-long rollout of songs that have marked special occasions like the Fourth of July, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Bruce Springsteen's birthday, Halloween and Christmas.
Naturally, "Fool's Gold" is a reflection back on the year that was, tying it in with the final holiday of this year (and the first of next year) — New Year's.
"I started writing 'Fool's Gold' the moment after the last person left a New Year's Eve party I hosted in 2018," Dacus said in a statement. "I did what I said — drank the last of the champagne alone, felt anxious, and locked the door behind everyone. New Year's has grown to be my favorite holiday, and this may be my favorite song on the EP."
Listen to "Fool's Gold" below.
2019 is officially out tomorrow (November 8) via Matador.
