Lucca firmly believes in the power of stripped-down acoustic performances. "As a songwriter, first and foremost, it's important to me that a song can live alone with just an acoustic guitar and a voice," he tells Billboard. "'Delilah' is that kind of song. It was fun chasing down other ideas in the studio but it feels good to be able to convey the idea alone in my office too.”
The track opens with bluesy, troubling lines -- "She's got gold in her pocket, a knife in her hand/running through the desert with a killing man." Lucca's strumming becoming increasingly furious as the song progresses, adding to its power. "Delilah" will appear on Lucca's forthcoming self-titled album (his eighth full-length), scheduled to come out in January 2015.
