Lucy Dacus - "Brando" on Jimmy Kimmel Live



Pre-order / Pre-save Home Video

Lucy Dacus will release her third album, Home Video, this Friday. Last night, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she performed the newest single, “Brando.” Dacus’ flair for storytelling is vibrant in “Brando” and the Old Hollywood references she weaves throughout come to life in her endearing Kimmel performance. Filmed at the Theatre Gym at the Virginia Repertory Theatre, two dancers/choreographers, Egbert Vongmalaithong and Christina Leoni-Osion, twirl behind Dacus as she and her band perform; the scene transforms from black & white into a full spectrum of colors. This is Dacus’ second late night appearance for Home Video, following The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. It previews her forthcoming run supporting Bright Eyes, and headline tour which kicks off later this summer.
