Lissie will release her highly anticipated debut full-length album, Catching A Tiger, in the U.S. on August 17, 2010 via Fat Possum. A pre-order of the album is available now on Fat Possum’s website.
Catching A Tiger follows her 10-shows-in-4-days sprint at this year’s SXSW festival, a run that caught the attention of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Perez Hilton, and Aquarium Drunkard, among others.
Catching A Tiger was recorded in Nashville, TN, with Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones, Modest Mouse) and in Asheville, NC, with Bill Reynolds (of Band of Horses, who also produced most of Why You Runnin’).
“When I’m Alone” is currently taking root on both Radio 1 and Radio 2 playlists in the UK and a number of Lissie’s videos have recently lit up the blogs. Her cover of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance” has garnered over half a million views and her take on Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit Of Happiness,” released last week, is already catching extensive attention. Live videos of new album tracks “In Sleep” and the recently released “Bully” have also been getting major traction, in addition to showcasing her captivating presence.
After hitting the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival earlier this month, Lissie will be on tour throughout the summer, playing in the U.S. on select Lilith Fair dates in August and the Austin City Limits Festival in October, as well as at major UK summer festivals Glastonbury, Bestival, iTunes Festival, V Festival, Latitude, and T in the Park. More U.S. touring news will be announced soon.
