Lissie will release a new EP Covered Up With Flowers on November 8th, 2011 via Fat Possum. The EP is a collection of five cover songs, featuring her fan-favorite versions of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”, Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit Of Happiness”, and Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” – live videos of which have garnered more than five million combined views on YouTube. Highlighting both her artistic versatility and the range of her extraordinary, sun-and-whiskey-soaked voice, Covered Up With Flowers also includes two new covers: Lissie’s soulful, rootsy take on Joe South’s “Games People Play” and a haunting version of Nick Cave’s “The Ship Song”. The EP will be available exclusively on iTunes a week prior to release, beginning November 1st.
Lissie, also a VH1 “You Oughta Know” artist, is now confirmed to support Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers on October 29th at the Benefit Concert for Public Radio Station 88.5 FM KCSN/Los Angeles. The show will be held at the Plaza del Sol Performance Hall on the California State University, Northridge campus.
