Lissie’s “Don’t You Give Up On Me” will be released alongside My Wild West on Feb 12th through Cooking Vinyl.
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.
Her new album, My Wild West, the follow up to 2010’s Catching a Tiger and 2013’s Back to Forever is Lissie’s most personal effort to date. It was recorded with producer Curt Schneider in his Studio City home – he oversaw the project as a whole, produced 8 tracks on the record and pulled together the additional material from Lissie’s time recording with her band in Ojai and with Bill Reynolds (Band of Horses) in Nashville.
Going back to her roots in more ways than one, Lissie has returned to touring as a solo act – recently playing London’s Union Chapel. Lissie will tour the UK next month and has also announced a further London date for Feb 2016.
