Steve Lacy has seldomly popped out over the past few years. He’s made some cameos on other artists’ records since 2020’s The Lo-Fis but fans have eagerly awaited a new project from The Internet band member.

Today, Lacy slid through with his latest single, “Mercury.” The song dives into the sounds of ’60s Brazilian bossa nova and provides the first glimpse of what we can expect from him in the future. “Mercury” also marks his first solo single since 2019.

Along with the new single, he announced his forthcoming album, Gemini Rights, set to drop this summer.

“The album challenged me to grow on a personal level. It was like everything had to match up energetically. It was a crazy experience, because there was a lot going on. I think it’s a really fun take on heartbreak. It has all the emotions, but it’s almost joking about it,” he told High Snobiety of his forthcoming project.

Lyrics

[Intro: Steve Lacy & Fousheé]
(Ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)

[Verse 1: Steve Lacy & Fousheé]
Gemini
I’m a myth and I’m a legend
Whom never wins
And might not ever play again
Keep falling in (Keep falling in, yeah)
Love so fast and back out again
Speeding
When I should ease in

[Pre-Chorus: Steve Lacy]
Oh, I know myself, my sins
Dug my pit, then I fell in
Pulled the trigger, killed us both
Lesson learned but truth gets old

[Chorus: Steve Lacy & Fousheé]
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of pleasure, little depression (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
How can I tell if? How can I measure? (Ooh, ah)
If I don’t know (Ooh, ah)

[Post-Chorus: Steve Lacy]
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Woah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ah)

[Verse 2: Steve Lacy]
I looked up at the ceiling as I draft my “I’m so sorry” text
Don’t regret the choice I chose but do regret the mess I made
I see you hurt, I wish I could just hold you tight and close
Don’t need long, just wanna say, “I love you and miss you most”

[Pre-Chorus: Steve Lacy]
Oh, I know myself, my skin
Rolling stones don’t crawl back in
Daddy’s faults fell down on me
Break that curse for sweet relief

[Chorus: Steve Lacy & Fousheé]
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of pleasure, little depression (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
Little of heaven, little unpleasant (Ooh, ah)
I don’t know (Ooh, ah)
How can I tell if? How can I measure? (Ooh, ah)
If I don’t know (Ooh, ah)

[Post-Chorus: Steve Lacy & Fousheé]
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)

[Verse 3: Steve Lacy & Fousheé]
Mercury running amuck in my mind
Can’t tell if I’m winning or falling behind
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Venus in retrograde got me in bed
And thinkin’ ’bout all of the shit that I said
Ba-ba-ba-ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Ba-ba-ba (Ooh, ah, ooh, ah)
Gemini scope give me depth ’til I’m dead
But I can’t seem to get the fuck out of my head
Well, fuck it, I’ll just cop a Porsche instead
I do as I please and you see where it lead
Guess somethin’ bad ain’t ’bout to happen to me
You think I’m two-faced, I can name twenty-three

[Bridge: Steve Lacy]
My layers, all these sides
Could you stick by for the ride?
It’s a thrill, and I don’t even know how to feel
It might be too real
Might be too—
Real, might be too real, real
I said, “Might be too—”
Might, I said, “Might be too real, real”
I said, “Might be too real”

[Outro: Fousheé]
Excuse me if I lied
I forgot I said that
Can you forgive my tongue?
I’ll show you where my head at
I don’t think I’m the one
But I could be your girlfriend
‘Til retrograde is done
