"Chiropractors hate her," jokes a fan on Instagram. For those unfamiliar with the song, 'Lucid' has been teased as far back as May 2020. In an interview with Twitch streamer HANAWINS in July, Sawayama confirmed that 'Lucid' would be a non-album single and that it is getting a "performance video." She said, "I just filmed... I don't want to say it's a music video, it's more like a music performance video because it's using this very interesting technology. Basically, it's social-distance-compliant and it's one of the few socially-distant-compliant studios in London. And I filmed it across two weeks, and so it's quite hardcore, but, yeah, it's for a non-album single." Sawayama then went on to say that she planned to release it before the end of summer.

Sawayama actually teased the sound of the track during her DJ set performance at a 'Minecraft' virtual concert in May. You can watch a snippet of the 'Minecraft' concert and 'Lucid' by clicking here.
As far as a deluxe version for 'Sawayama', the singer hasn't made any previous announcements or teased the possibility. If we are to hazard a guess based on her latest teaser, the usage of the word "music" and not the specific mention of "song" could allude to the plural form of new material and not singular. Either way, Rina Sawayama dropping more music is sure to be epic. Be sure to stay tuned for more updates or check out her social media in the days to come.
