Like all folkloric stories, the making of Something’s Changing has a certain degree of serendipity. While on a quick break from the hectic tour commitments of Lucy’s top 10 charting second album Work It Out, Lucy noticed a steady stream of tweets reaching her from Latin America. This was in addition to the unlikely statistic that her music’s most listened to city on Spotify was Mexico City. This insight gave birth to the seed of an idea that became a real labour of love over the next six months. Lucy offered her fans in Latin America a deal: “If you book me a gig, I’ll come and stay”. It was a ‘loco demente’ plan but the outcome was far more fruitful and inspiring than could have been imagined.
For two months Lucy, her guitar, and her backpack toured Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Mexico, playing free shows, staying with fans and “falling back in love with making music”. To document the experience, Lucy’s Husband/Tour Manager brought along a camera and together they endeavoured to film as much of the trip they could. The result was deeply moving footage of, fans blocking the street outside a gig above a launderette, trying to sleep on endless inter-city bus rides, living with families in out of the way towns and Lucy, being overwhelmed by the kindness and faith in music of those she met. After reflecting on the hours of film, this footage became the source material for the documentary film (of the same name as the album) about the trip.
Something’s Changing was released on July 7, 2017 via Arts & Crafts.
