Lissie grew up in Rock Island, Illinois, near the Mississippi River, speaking her mind and writing songs from an early age. She will release her highly anticipated fourth studio album Castles on March 23.
“Best Days,” the new single from acclaimed artist Lissie, premiered on Jan. 19. Of the track, Lissie says, “’Best Days’ is a song of hope. That our best days aren’t behind us, that in the present moment we are inside of ‘the good old days’ and that life is full of all kinds of exciting surprises and adventures to come! Don’t stop believing that the best is yet to come.”
Written predominantly from Lissie’s farm in Northeast Iowa, Castles represents a new openness in her approach to songwriting and recording. Having moved out of the music industry machine and back to her native Midwest, the groundedness she found living and working on a farm ushered in a period of exploration. Castles is a portrait of an artist who has always been on the move and is finally creating a sense of permanency—a chance to catch her breath and reflect.
