Lucy Dacus Shares “Night Shift” Video Celebrating “Historian” Anniversary
Lucy Dacus celebrates the five year anniversary of her cherished sophomore LP, Historian, which was released via Matador. To mark the occasion, Dacus has unveiled the first-ever music video for the album’s opening track, “Night Shift,” which was directed by Jane Schoenbrun and features Dacus and Jasmin Savoy Brown, among others.
“Night Shift” is a fan favorite and a breakup anthem that encourages listeners to believe in and manifest the future they desire. The long-awaited video was filmed over several days at the Poconos Palace in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, with friends old and new. The video premiered last night in New York at Nitehawk Prospect Park, followed by a Q+A session with Dacus and Schoenbrun, moderated by E.R. Fightmaster and Liza Anne, who both had featured roles in the video.

Dacus’ third studio album, Home Video, was released in 2021 and has been celebrated as one of the year’s best records.

Dacus also released the b-side “Kissing Lessons” ahead of her tour in support of Home Video. This spring, she will be performing alongside Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker as Boygenius.
A limited edition red vinyl of Historian will be released on May 26th, 2023, via Matador, which features Dacus’ first draft of the original artwork. For more information on Lucy Dacus, visit her website here.
