On December 7, Lucius will put out a 7″ single featuring covers of “Christmas Time Is Here” and “Keep Me Hanging On” via Mom+Pop Music. The release is the first for the newly launched Fug Yep Soundation, which was formed by the Los Angeles-based band after the passing of their longtime friend and fellow musician Richard Swift.
The single, which includes a take on the tune from the 1965 television special A Charlie Brown Christmas, was recorded at Swift’s studio National Freedom in April 2017. All artist profits will give financial aid to the Swift family and benefit MusiCares and Music Support UK. Both organizations provide help to musicians in need of medical, personal and financial assistance. The single is currently available for pre-order here.
