Lissie returns: Hooray for Lissie!!

AMAZING NEWS: Lissie, the country-pop-rock singer whose debut album Catching A Tiger crowned my Top 10 in 2010 is finally back with some new material. Her new single, Shameless, is rockier, angrier and slightly more Sheryl Crow than her earlier material... But I'm literaly too excited to write anything more coherent and sensible, so here's the press release:

Bristling with distorted guitars and fiery attitude, Shameless is a smouldering commentary on the culture of modern celebrity, introspectively examining what it takes to achieve fame and success in current times. Building towards its rousing climax, Lissie's raw vocals and gritty, heartfelt delivery make for a compelling and blistering return.

"We live in a society where terrible behaviour is rewarded with coverage and attention, where celebrity is seen as a talent in itself. I understand the allure of image and of a good story but i sometimes feel like it trumps the content. When i wrote Shameless i'd just been feeling so over how much bullshit style over substance there is to 'making' it in this business," said Lissie.


The lyric video is below. Caution for swears.

Lissie is also playing at Dingwalls in London on 7th May. Tickets go on sale this Friday at this weblinky. See you there.
