From her new album Castles
Available March 23
NPR First Listen starting on March 15
"’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." – Lissie
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.
Of the record, Lissie says, "The album title Castles and the themes of the music itself suggest a striving and a heightened vantage point. I can stand above myself in the tower of my mind and reflect on my relationships and life. There is a maturity, experience and self awareness to these songs that feel like a natural progression within the context of my work to date."
Lissie’s album My Wild West—the follow up to Catching a Tiger (2010) and Back to Forever (2013)—peaked at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and Top 10 on the Independent Album chart. Lissie also appeared in the most recent season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks with NME saying of her "intense" performance: "Closing the episode with the Stevie Nicks-esque ‘Wild West,’ Rock Island’s most exciting troubadour more than earned her Lynch-commissioned screen time."

Total Time: 19:10

Available Date & Time: January 19, 2018 11:00 AM ET
Impact Date: March 2, 2018
Year end charts are in…and "Even If" by MercyMe was the #1 most played song of 2017 according to both Billboard (BDS) and Mediabase (All Access/USA Today)! In addition, MercyMe was the most played artist on Christian radio in 2017 according to Mediabase (All Access/USA Today). With 19 weeks at #1, three Dove Awards, an American Music Award Nomination, and two GRAMMY nominations…you can say last year was a good one for MercyMe. We can’t thank radio enough for your incredible support! You ready for what’s next?!?
"‘Grace Got You’ is just a song that makes me smile. The whole idea that once you realize that God’s grace has you no matter what comes your way, you can live your life as if you’ve already read the last page of the book and know how the whole thing turns out. Our eternity is set! On your worst day, Christ is OK with you. He adores you. He’s pleased with you. How is that possible? No clue, but it is. That’s the most amazing news of all! When we originally made the album, we wanted to have someone rap, but we didn’t know who we were going to get. Our paths crossed with a guy who used to be on Gotee Records named John Reuben – who we had done stuff early on with when we were all new together – and we asked him if he’d come out of retirement to rap on the song. It turned out so fun, and totally matched the vibe of the song." (Bart Millard)
MercyMe and Fair Trade are proud to present "Grace Got You" – impacting AC / Hot AC / Soft AC March 2!
