Well this is a little treat to start Bad Thursday with. Lilly Hiatt’s latest album ‘Trinity Lane’ is out now via New West Records and she’s heading to the UK next month for a series of dates. Rolling Stone called the record”the most cohesive and declarative statement of the young songwriter’s career” and Lilly has shared a live track with us from a session filmed at the LR Baggs Soundcheck Office in Nashville during the 2017 Americana Festival. She told AUK: “I started writing this song in Norman, Oklahoma at a friend’s place after a long tour. I was feeling kinda funny, after massive amounts of driving alone. It sat for a while, until I showed it to my friend Joe back in Tennessee. He had a couple lines that I loved and ended up using them for the chorus. Voila!” Talented to bejesus and multi-lingual too! UK dates are below.
