Lucy Dacus has dropped the latest song in her '2019' song series, 'My Mother & I'.

Released to mark the start of Taurus Season and US Mother's Day, it follows up on a cover of 'La Vie En Rose' for Valentine's Day as part of a run of songs commemorating key dates through the year.

“Being adopted has encouraged me to consider what mothers pass on through blood and body, and what they impart in the way of socialization and context,” Lucy.

“We — daughters, and all children — easily inherit the shame and fear of our mothers, but also the pride, self-assurance, and lessons of love. This song focuses on body image and the distinction between the body and the soul, which I can hardly claim to have clarity about to this day. I also reflect on traits my mother and I share as Taurean women- how we are steadfast but headstrong, empathetic but grounded, and dedicated to finding and giving reliable love and comfort.”
