Lissie Brings us new track “A Bird Could Love A Fish” from anniversary collection of “Cathching a tiger“
The new single ‘A Bird Could Love A Fish’ is a fascinating addition to the original album. Veering towards psychedelic folk with shimmering guitars, the song finds Lissie precisely enunciating a parable for a love that can never be.
Lissie says: “‘A Bird Could Love a Fish’ is a bit of an unusual song for me to have written. My lyrics are generally pretty true to life and straightforward, while this felt more like telling a tale, a metaphor. A common theme throughout my music has been the disintegration of romantic relationships. Even then, back in 2008 or so, my unconventional path made settling down difficult.
The new single “A Bird Could Love A Fish” will feature on ‘Catching A Tiger (Anniversary Edition)’, which follows on August 20th.
I had seen a picture and poem to the effect of a bird and a fish falling in love and I wanted to explore that because I related. The bird needs the sky and the air to fly and the fish, the water and depth to survive and so there was something curious and heartbreaking about that to me. While there could be mutual love, it couldn’t realistically last forever.”
After “Catching a tiger”, Lissie will publish ‘Watch Over Me (Early Works 2002-2009)’. This nine songs show Lissie’s early evolution as an artist, cementing the identity to match her already accomplished writing.
All bundles featuring both albums on vinyl and/or CD will also feature an exclusive signed photographic print.
