Lucius "Second Nature" RT Black and Pink Swirl LP (2022)
Details: Limited to 500. Lucius "Second Nature" Rough Trade exclusive version. Black and Pink Swirl LP, 2022, released on Mom + Pop Records. Comes with poster. New stock, sealed.
Description: "Second Nature is a portrait of singer and songwriters Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe’s shared reflection, chronicling each other’s seismic life shifts—motherhood, divorce, unplanned career pauses—and setting it to music.
Recorded primarily at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, the 10-song album was written by Laessig and Wolfe and features their longtime band members Peter Lalish, and Dan Molad alongside Solomon Dorsey with additional contributions from Drew Erickson, Rob Moose, and Gabriel Cabezas with mixing by Rob Kinelski and Molad as well as Carlile and Sheryl Crow on backing vocals.
Of working on the project, [Brandi] Carlile shares, “Lucius has been one of my favorite bands since their first studio album. I kept running into them at festivals and finding myself mystified by their power. This album feels like home to me and anyone growing up surrounded by 80s and 90s pop, but somehow Second Nature is the beginning of a new era—not just for Lucius, but for all of us. We need to get back up on our feet and that’s what this album is insisting we do. This is my first co-production with my dear pal Dave Cobb and I don’t know if I’ve ever been prouder even to witness something let alone get my hands on it. It was an absolute blast.”
Second Nature is Lucius’ third full-length album and first since 2016’s Good Grief. Widely acclaimed since their debut in 2013, The New York Times declares, “Luscious, luminous, lilting lullabies,” while NPR Music asserts, “gorgeous, joyful songs” and Pitchfork praises, “powerful voices and a keen sense of melody.” In addition to their work in the band, Laessig and Wolfe have recorded with Sheryl Crow, Harry Styles, The War on Drugs, Ozzy Osborne, and John Legend and toured extensively alongside Roger Waters."
