Lucy Dacus – “La Vie En Rose” (Édith Piaf Cover)

Singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus is in a festive holiday spirit, as evidenced with her forthcoming project 2019. The new album will feature covers and original songs based on different holidays that Dacus recorded over a two year period. Today, she released her Valentine’s Day track, a cover of Édith Piaf’s classic “La Vie En Rose,” sung in both English and French.

“From the first time I heard it, I thought ‘La Vie En Rose’ was a perfect song. Hearing it, I knew that, one day, I would fall in love,” Lucy Dacus said in a statement. “I want someone to listen to this while running at top speed to the doorstep of the person they adore, ready to profess their deep, undying love. (PS, there’s a longer story about singing this song as a duet with my middle school janitor, but it is not concise).”

Along with a Valentine’s Day track, 2019 will also feature songs for Mother’s Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, and “Springsteen’s Birthday.” The holiday-themed album will be out later this year. In the meantime Dacus is headed on the road for a North American and European tour starting February 1. Listen to “La Vie En Rose” and check out her tour schedule below.
