“Her work feels like a part of my DNA and I’m grateful for it.”

Following the release of her third album ‘Home Video’ last year, today Lucy Dacus is covering two songs from Carole King, sharing her take on ‘Tapestry’ tracks ‘Home Again’ and ‘It’s Too Late’.

“When I listened to ‘Tapestry’ from my mom’s CD collection, I was young enough that it didn’t register as good or bad – it just defined what music sounded like to me, and it’s still a foundation of how I understand songwriting,” Lucy told The Guardian. “She’s clever in the good way – queen of internal rhyme – and I love how her melodies reinforce the tone of the lyrics. She keeps it simple, but that’s what makes it universal.

“When I was asked to cover a couple of her songs, it was a no brainer. Her work feels like a part of my DNA and I’m grateful for it.”
