An exciting morning indeed. The announcement has officially been made: Lucius‘s debut full-length, titled Wildewoman, will be released on October 15th.
Accompanying this news comes the album’s first single, “Hey, Doreen”—a “soulful song…powered by fuzzy guitar hits, soft organ tones, electronic effects, and reverberating keys, making for a very modern take on some classic ideas.” The spot-on quote comes from Spin, which is also where you can hear the new tune.
Album art and tracklist follow.
2. “Turn It Around”
3. “Go Home”
4. “Hey, Doreen”
6. “Nothing Ordinary”
7. “The Two of Us on the Run”
8. “Until We Get There”
9. “Don’t Just Sit There”
11. “How Loud Your Heart Gets”

Hey guys, it looks like Lucius’s website has gotten a new look. Can you decipher Bea and Ava’s intimate scriptures? Oh god, it’s all just so mysterious, I can barely handle it.

It looks like Lucius and Tweedy & co. have been forming a friendship. On June 21st at Wilco-curated Solid Sound Festival Lucius joined the hosting band for their annual cover set, playing alongside legendary alt-country-whatever stars for a few of the tracks.
If you had the good fortune to witness this performance live, then we might have been jealous (and probably still are), but at least now we can hear what we missed out on. Today marks the release of the live cover set, fully mixed and mastered. Check out the impressive setlist below. Looks like a must-have for any of you Wilco/Lucius fans out there. I know I want one.
You can purchase a downloadable version right here. And don’t forget, Lucius is on tour now! Check out the dates.

Remember a few months ago we launched our monthly subscription service, Boombox? Well, since then our subscribers have been hand-delivered digital albums from FIDLAR, Wavves and Polica, have been offered exclusive access to singles from Polica, Beat Club, and Smith Westerns, and have received brand new digital EPs from Neon Indian and Kid Astray before any else has even had a look in… and Boombox is only just getting started.
We have a lot of exciting stuff up our sleeves for the rest of the year, and we wanted to give you guys a taster of everything we’ve been working on (because we feel selfish keeping it all to ourselves). Head over to our Soundcloud player to stream the first installment of what will be a semi-regular compilation series from Mom+Pop, this time featuring singles from Jagwar Ma, Polica, Flume, Neon Indian, Hunters, FIDLAR, Wavves, Kid Astray, Mikhael Paskalev, Beat Club, Animal Kingdom, Smith Westerns, Andrew Bird, and Lucius. Phew!
