Lucy Dacus Covers Carole King’s ‘Home Again’ and ‘It’s Too Late’
Lucy Dacus has offered her take on Carole King’s ‘Home Again’ and ‘It’s Too Late’, two tracks off King’s classic 1971 album Tapestry. Originally released exclusively on a 7” as part of Third Man Records’ Carole King Home Again vault package earlier this year, the covers are now available on streaming services. Take a listen below.
“When I listened to Tapestry from my mom’s CD collection, I was young enough that it didn’t register as good or bad – it just defined what music sounded like to me, and it’s still a foundation of how I understand songwriting,” Dacus told The Guardian. “She’s clever in the good way – queen of internal rhyme – and I love how her melodies reinforce the tone of the lyrics. She keeps it simple, but that’s what makes it universal.” She adds, “When I was asked to cover a couple of her songs, it was a no brainer. Her work feels like a part of my DNA and I’m grateful for it.”
Lucy Dacus recently shared a rendition of Cher’s ‘Believe’ for the Spotify Singles series. Her latest album, Home Video, came out last year.
