Thumbs has been a regular in Lucy Dacus’ live performances since 2018.

Fans will be breathing a sigh of relief at the release of the studio version of Lucy Dacus‘ track Thumbs.

Debuted live three years ago, it was written during a 15-minute car ride to dinner in Nashville; “Like most songs I write, I wasn’t expecting it and it made me feel weird, almost sick,” Dacus remembers.

“It tells the story of a day I had with a friend during our freshman year of college, a significant day, but not one that I had thought of for years. I started playing it live a month or so later during the boygenius tour after Phoebe and Julien encouraged me to.”

“I knew I wanted a long time to get used to playing it since it made me feel shaky, so I ended sets with it for about half the shows I played in 2019. Before I played it, I would ask the audience to please not record it, a request that seems to have been respected, which I’m grateful for.”
