Lucius has shared a brand-new track entitled “Stranger Danger,” the group’s first new music since the release of their most recent album, Second Nature, in April 2022. The sparkling, irresistible “Stranger Danger” is quintessential Lucius: probing, futuristic dream-pop centered around the luminescent harmonies of founders Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig. The track arrives with an accompanying lyric video.
Of the song, Lucius shared, “Humans have imagined a backup plan—a ‘savior’ to forgive us, to save us, to lean on…for ourselves, if and when things go wrong but who/what/where is the backup plan for Mother Earth?”
Written by Wolfe, Laessig and the band’s Dan Molad, “Stranger Danger” marks the group’s inaugural release for new label partner Fantasy Records. Molad also produced the song—his first Lucius production since the band’s 2013 debut album, Wildewoman.
The track’s musical lineup includes Wolfe (vocals, keyboards), Laessig (vocals, keyboards), Molad (drums, percussion, programming), Lucius’ Peter Lalish (electric guitar), Solomon Dorsey (bass), Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith (electric guitar and piano), and Josh Mease (bass, guitar).
Lucius recently announced a special seven-date tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their breakthrough album. Wildewoman: The Anniversary Tour includes stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, Philadelphia, Burlington, Portland (ME), Boston, and New York. Check out the full list of dates below.
