Did you hear Lucy Dacus’ newest single via a phone call from a number on a street flyer? If this sounds familiar, then you caught the indie rocker’s campaign to release her single “Kissing Lessons,” a missing tune from 2021’s acclaimed Home Video. Otherwise, “Kissing Lessons,” and its music video directed by Mara Palena, is out today.

Like the tracklist of Home Video, “Kissing Lessons” plays out like a page from Dacus’s childhood diary. “We’d take turns being seduced / Imagining the day it would come into use / Imagining the day we’d start breaking hearts / And taking names,” Dacus sings over energetic electric guitar strumming and a soft drum beat. The video captures the nostalgia perfectly, with a set straight out of the early aughts complete with doodles and Polaroid pictures. 

“Kissing Lessons,” along with the stripped-down “Thumbs Again,” will be available on limited edition 7” vinyl on June 3rd. Also in 2022, Dacus will tour some previously un-visited cities, with one date at New York City’s SummerStage in Central Park on July 21st with Philly favorites, Hop Along. Tickets are available soon — check the XPN Concert Calendar for more details.
