The fan favourite finally gets an official release.

After first debuting live back in 2018, ‘Thumbs’ has quickly become a fave amongst fans (we’re looking at you Twitter user ‘Has Lucy released Thumbs yet?’), and now Lucy Dacus is finally giving the song its official release!

Written during a 15 minute car ride, Lucy says of the track, “Like most songs I write, I wasn’t expecting it and it made me feel weird, almost sick. 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.”
