Lucy Michelle And The Velvet Lapelles Release New Album HeatToday
MTV to Premiere “Just A Kid” Video On June 11
Band To Tour US Supporting HEAT This Summer

Minneapolis sextet Lucy Michelle And The Velvet Lapelles are pleased to release their newest full length album, HEAT, today. HEAT is the band’s fourth full-length release and their first since 2010’s Good of That. The album was recorded at Vacation Island Recording Studios in Brooklyn with acclaimed producer/engineer Matt Boynton (MGMT, Beirut, Bat for Lashes). HEAT spotlights the band’s eclectic musical style, creating a brilliant wash of organic psych-folk from a blend of interweaving ukeleles, accordion, electric guitar, upright bass, cello, drums and (of course) Lucy Michelle’s uniquely recognizable vocals. For complete track listing, please see below.
The band is also excited to announce that their recently released music video for HEAT’sfirst single “Just A Kid” will have its MTV premiere on June 11 on their Freshman 5 program. The video was created by Picture Machine Productions, the same team who produced last year’s music video for Bon Iver’s “Calgary.” Watch the video for “Just A Kid” below:
The band will be touring the US in support of HEAT in the coming weeks, playing a handful of shows throughout the Midwest and the West Coast this summer. More dates to be announced. For a full list of tour dates, please see below.
