Lissie is ready to return

Indie | Saturday 28th November 2015 | Christina

As Lissie gears up to return to our shores next month, she shares 'Don't You Give Up On Me', the first single from her forthcoming third album My Wild West

My Wild West is a celebration of new adventures to come as Lissie moves back to the Midwest and waves goodbye to her life in California. On ‘Don’t You Give Up On Me’, Lissie sings: “I left you on the coast for something only I can see… Don’t you give up on me, As I dive into the dark, And slip into the endless sea”. The single is about having a vision and urging those around you to hang in there whilst you figure it out.

Lissie’s two previous albums, 2010’s Catching a Tiger and 2013’s Back to Forever, both hit Top 20in the UK charts with the former record going gold. Her songs have been licensed for countless films and TV shows, whilst ‘The Longest Road,’ a song she wrote with DJ Morgan Page was subsequently remixed by Deadmau5 and nominated for a Best Remixed Record Grammy.

Her new album, My Wild West, is Lissie’s most personal effort to date. With a career that has seen her open for renowned artists Lenny Kravitz and Tom Petty, Lissie has had a wealth of incredible experiences that have made her the confident and determined artist she is today. As she moves into the next journey, she laughs, “I’m in a really good place. In fact, I’m already planning a follow-up album, My Mild Midwest.”

Going back to her roots in more ways than one, Lissie has returned to touring as a solo act – selling out London’s Union Chapel in 24 hours without any fanfare, Lissie will tour the UK next month and has also announced a further London date for Feb 2016.
