After getting permission, Carson did some rewrites and made it her own. Speaking to Ladygunn, she explained, "Drugs isn’t really about drugs at all, but it comes from that same dark place of needing to sate some desire or emptiness and being willing to use someone for that… It is about abuse."Drugs, live at The White Horse.Carson will embark upon her first ever UK tour next month, starting off with a slot at the AmericanaFest UK Showcase Festival in London on 29th January, where she’ll also be playing a free in-store show at Rough Trade East on the 31st.
