Lucius’ new song “Muse” debuts today


November 2, 2022—Acclaimed indie pop band Lucius’ new song, “Muse,” is debuting today. Listen/share HERE.  

Reflecting on the song, which was written by Lucius (Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe) and Jillian Jacqueline, the duo shares, “‘Muse’ is a snapshot of love and the endless creativity it can inspire. Though separated by computer screens in the heart of lockdown, we managed to delve deep with our talented friend, Jillian Jacqueline, about the nuances and preciousness of relationships: Where they start, how they deepen, vulnerability vs complacency, the differences between infatuation and rich partnership. ‘Muse’ was our musical springboard.” 

“Muse” is the first new music from Lucius following their acclaimed new record, Second Nature, which was released this past spring via Mom + Pop Music (U.S. and Mexico), Dine Alone (Canada), Second Nature Records/Secretly Distribution (RoW)—stream/purchase here. Produced by Dave Cobb and Brandi Carlile, Second Nature is a portrait of Laessig and Wolfe’s shared reflection, chronicling each other’s seismic life shifts—motherhood, divorce, unplanned career pauses—and setting it to music.  

In celebration of the album, Lucius will kick off the second leg of their “Feels Like Second Nature” headline tour tonight at Santa Fe’s Meow Wolf with additional upcoming shows at Austin’s Scoot Inn, Dallas’ The Echo, Denver’s Ogden Theatre, Seattle’s Neptune Theatre, Portland’s Crystal Ballroom, San Francisco’s The Fillmore and Los Angeles’ The Belasco among many others. See below for complete itinerary. 

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. 

Critical acclaim for Second Nature
“Wolfe and Laessig…intertwine their voices with almost-telepathic precision; they can do complex harmonies but they often sing in a striking unison that, especially when deployed in tandem with their matching stage outfits, lends the songs an otherworldly voice-from-above quality.”—Los Angeles Times
“with Second Nature…they’re no longer 20 feet or even a couple of yards from stardom, but reclaiming the spotlight for themselves”—Variety
“full of lush production that’s complemented by the chilling harmonies of Jess Wolfe and
Holly Laessig”—Billboard
“Laessig and Wolfe have mastered harmony. They can make themselves at home in any era, at any tempo, and sound utterly authentic.”—Pitchfork
Second Nature is a disco album that pushes the limits of the moods we associate with music – it dances and grooves to sad and introspective lyrics, it shuffles an ’80s synth beat on top of very modern concerns and worries.”—Spin
“Lucius contains multitudes…shows off the pair’s powerhouse vocals and enviable blend”
“they have crafted a candidate for the feel-good record of the year”—Forbes
“a new album stocked with dance-floor bangers”—The Boston Globe
“hyper-catchy choruses…a timeless dance groove that does anything but overstay its welcome”—Paste
“Lucius executes these styles with aplomb and brings the perfect amount of diva flair to the
table, the alchemy in their vocal connection as striking as ever.”—Glide
“a harmonic monument to the moment disco met folk”—Nashville Lifestyles
