Bless This Mess, a reference to life and all its wonderful chaos and colour, is both the title track of Lisa Mitchell's highly anticipated new album available October 12 and the name of her new single, out now.
It has been three years since Lisa's debut album Wonder first set hearts aflutter - going on to win the Australian Music Prize (AMP) for album of the year; as well as attaining platinum+ sales status. Lisa embarked on a non-stop touring schedule including international tours with Mumford & Sons, her own theatre headlines and an inspired set at UK's legendary Glastonbury festival performing alongside Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen and Nick Cave.
Bless This Mess, the single, inspired by the household saying you often see cross-stitched and hanging on a Nanna's wall, is the follow-up from Lisa's uplifting Spiritus EP that was released earlier this year. Featuring Lisa's trademark lyrics and melodies, Bless This Mess also sees her rock out like never before. Both Bless This Mess and Spiritus will feature on Lisa's sophomore album.
In June of this year Lisa embarked on an inspired national Heavenly Sounds tour of Churches. Every date sold-out and fortunate fans were treated to bespoke performances of her past hits (including Coin Laundry, Neapolitan Dreams, Oh Hark, and Spiritus) as well as a teaser of what they can expect from the new album.
This October, Lisa is set to hit the road again with full six-piece band and a swag of rich and wonderful new songs. Special guests and good friends Alpine and Danco are joining for the occasion.
Melbourne six-piece Alpine released their debut album A is for Alpine last month, peaking at no.1 on iTunes and debuting at #11 on the ARIA album chart, where it has remained in the Top 40 for the past three weeks. Featuring dual vocal front-women Phoebe Baker and Lou James, Alpine has drawn praise from across the world for their inventive music and infectious layered melodies. They have recently signed a US record deal with Votiv Records (We Are Augustines, Imaginery Cities, Gaz Coombes, Cloud Control).
Danco is the new musical project of Dann Hume, regarded as one of the countries most gifted young writers and producers. Coincidentally, his credits this year include producing albums for Lisa Mitchell and Alpine. The first release from Danco is the spirited High and Lonely played on triple j Unearthed. Dann is now in the studio putting the final touches on his debut solo long player.
Tickets to Lisa Mitchell's "Bless This Mess" album tour featuring Alpine and Danco are on sale now.
