Live Gig Video: Lucy Rose shares shadowy promo for single ‘Conversation’ from upcoming fourth album

The uncompromising Lucy Rose will be releasing a new album this March. The follow-up to 2017’s ‘Something’s Changing’ and its associated 2018 remix album, ‘No Words Left’ will be with us in March. (I wonder if she’ll be appearing at SXSW 2019 to promote the new LP?) Speaking about the upcoming release, she said, “…sincerity really is the key to this record. It’s my truth. Sincerity is the truth of a person, not just the good but the bad: the flaws, the realness, which can never be ‘perfect’. This album reflects the reality of my life, the toughness life throws at you, and for a period of time it did become too much for me to handle alone.”

An early taster, the single ‘Conversation’ is a song about – yup, you guessed it – the words you longed to say to someone but couldn’t. She goes through the conflicting feelings of love and hate for someone she clearly adores but who has also hurt her deeply. (I’m so intrigued by Lucy’s word choices here, I’m considering doing a full analysis over on my other site Music in Notes.) The treatment given to the song, with her emotive voice and acoustic guitar, augmented by a sweetly gentle orchestration in the background, is sheer perfection. If this is Lucy Rose being honest and beautifully so, then ‘No Words Left’ should be an incredible record indeed. Watch the monochromatic, beguilingly shadowy performance video for ‘Conversation’ below. It’s scheduled for release on the 22nd of March on Communion Records. She has announced UK tour dates for mid-April and Continental ones for early May. Past coverage on TGTF on Lucy Rose can be read through here.
