On the heels of an unforgettable 2018, critically-acclaimed artist Lucie Silvas kicks off the year with the official release of her new single “Black Jeans.” Co-written by Silvas, JD McPherson, and Trent Dabbs, the song stands out as a highlight from her renowned recent album E.G.O. “Black Jeans” impacts radio stations nationwide beginning January 21st and is currently available at iTunes and all digital retailers, here: https://apple.co/2IYSjJI.

Slipping into a soulful cadence on the track, the singer’s dusty delivery evoke sixties Southern California spirit by way of Nashville. A rustle of slide guitar punctuates delicate acoustic strumming as she croons, “When I’m wearing my black jeans, maybe you won’t even recognize me, and you know I won’t just take a backseat.” An album favorite, NPR claimed that it, “suspends temperate touches of Laurel Canyon-style psychedelia in a sublime cinematic haze… and depicts the numbed self-preservation required for a woman to pursue desirability.”
Lucie Silvas said of the song, “’Black Jeans’ is somewhat of a centerpiece for this new record, being able to lay back a bit and find perspective on everything around me and my place in it. Feels like an escape of some kind – but not running away from anything, just running towards something new and good. It sounds like I’ve always felt when I sing but until now, I didn’t know how to put into a song.”
Following a string of sold-out international tour dates, Silvas returns to the road on Anderson East’s Encore World Tour in February. Her combination of retro pop sonics, narrative storytelling, and countrified spirit will undoubtedly electrify audiences coast-to-coast. Showing no signs of slowing down in 2019, she joins Tom Odell immediately after on another full-scale tour, performing at major theaters and clubs across North America.
