Lucy Dacus has dropped the latest instalment of her '2019' song series, to celebrate Bruce Springsteen's birthday

Lucy Dacus has dropped the latest song in her '2019' song series.

Released to mark Bruce Springsteen's birthday, her cover of 'Dancing in the Dark' follows on from tributes to the 4th of July, US Mother's Day and Valentine's Day as part of a run of songs commemorating key dates through the year.

“Happy birthday to Bruce,” says Dacus, “but also happy birthday to my dad, the biggest Bruce fan I know and the reason I've listened to The Boss since birth.

"I resisted it when I was younger as a rebellion to my dad's taste, but I have come to love his music on my own time. His lyricism is embedded in my own songwriting inextricably at this point.”

Check out 'Dancing in the Dark' below.
