Fat Possum Records will release Back to Forever, the new studio album from Lissie, on September 10. Produced by Garret "Jacknife" Lee (R.E.M., Snow Patrol, Silversun Pickups), the 12-song collection is every bit as frank as 2010's Catching A Tiger, but reflects an objectivity and depth that come only with the benefit of hindsight, after healing from the hard knocks endured at love's hands. In short, the Quad City native has grown into the Mezcal-and-cigarettes voice that was so riveting on her debut album, which has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide, been certified Gold in the UK and Norway and brought her a host of accolades, with Paste Magazine naming her Best New Solo Artist, VH1 tapping her as a "You Oughta Know" artist and a Q Awards nomination for Best Breakthrough Artist.
Lissie will be previewing songs from Back to Forever on her upcoming tour, which kicks off this Saturday, June 15, in Norway and includes performances at the Bumbershoot Festival and Austin City Limits Festival in the U.S. She will also play the second stage of London's Hard Rock Calling right before Bruce Springsteen's main stage set on June 30.
