There are a few unwritten rules at SOMETHINGGOOD. One of them is this: if Lucy Dacus puts out a new song, it gets posted here in relatively short order.

There are two factors at play. First, I’m always down to support a fellow Virginian (she’s from Richmond; I grew up in Hampton Roads and now live in Arlington). Second – and more importantly – Dacus is making some of the most thoughtful and interesting music in the game right now, with songwriting abilities that compare favorably to some of the GOATs. She deserves the attention.

New track “Forever Half Mast” is the third entry in Dacus’ 2019 holiday-themed series of singles.
