Lissie has premiered her new single Hero and announced a European tour.
The singer shared the Talain Rayne-produced video for the lead cut from her upcoming third studio album My Wild West in a newsletter to her mailing list, and confirmed the record’s 12 February release date.
“I’d been thinking about duality, Schrödinger’s cat, parallel realities and just this general idea of being simultaneously a huge success and failure, and what I want my life to look like,” says Lissie about the inspiration for her dark sweeping country number, the video for which features footage shot in 1983.
Available to preorder now from the Californian singer-songwriter’s official website, My Wild West serves as the follow up to her blinding 2013 LP Back to Forever which reached #16 on the UK album chart and spawned the singles Shameless, Sleepwalking and Further Away (Romance Police).

Lissie will kick off a string of European dates on 1 December at The Limelight 2 in Belfast, ending up at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London on 15 December, and performing to audiences in France, Netherlsnda, Germany, Switzerland and Finland en route.
