Lucius’ tour stopped at New York’s Beacon Theatre where Roger Waters joined them on stage to cover Pink Floyd’s “Mother.”
Made up of Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, Lucius are out promoting their first album in six years, Second Nature. Back in 2017 and 2018, the duo were on tour with Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, and last night (May 4th) they reunited.
During the first song of their set, Lucius brought out Waters, who played acoustic guitar and sang “Mother.” Lucius brought in some vocals as well for the 1979 The Wall favourite. The only instrument in the cover was Waters’ acoustic guitar, allowing their stunning harmonies to truly shine.

Lucius’ recent album, Second Nature was produced by Dave Cobb and Brandi Carlile. Wolfe and Laessig wrote the album together, chronicling their life shifts. Together, they explore motherhood, divorce, career pauses, and more.
“It is a record that begs you not to sit in the difficult moments, but to dance through them,” Lucius’ Jess Wolfe explains. “It touches upon all these stages of grief–and some of that is breakthrough, by the way. Being able to have the full spectrum of the experience that we have had, or that I’ve had in my divorce, or that we had in lockdown, having our careers come to a halt, so to speak. I think you can really hear and feel the spectrum of emotion and hopefully find the joy in the darkness. It does exist. That’s why we made Second Nature and why we wanted it to sound the way it did: our focus was on dancing our way through the darkness.”
