While Lucius’ sleek look-a-like soul sisters Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig spent much of 2017 as a dazzling high point of Roger Waters‘ North American arena-conquering Us + Them tour (which resumes next week in Auckland, New Zealand and continues throughout the year in Australia, Europe and Central and South America), 2018 finds Lucius back together for an intimate, acoustic tour and the release of an accompanying 10-track acoustic album, NUDES. A collection of songs chosen specifically to showcase their soulful, powerful voices and gorgeous harmonies, NUDES includes three brand new songs, four compositions from the band’s back catalog, and three covers. The album also features sit-ins from Wilco’s Nels Cline (on “Million Dollar Secret“) and Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters (on “Goodnight Irene“).

Of choosing to record an acoustic album, Jess and Holly say, “Amidst nearly every performance over the past few years, we’ve had the opportunity to strip away everything – be it at the center of the crowd, or on stage around one microphone, or in tiny, unexpected rooms around the world – all to share and create an intimate, heartfelt connection with our audience. It’s these moments that have inspired our newest project, NUDES. Recorded over two days at New York’s legendary Electric Lady Studios, NUDES is a collection of acoustic songs: new, from our back catalog – reimagined, and covers we’ve always wanted to record. It is a record giving homage to what has been…and a hint at what’s to come.”
