LISSIE Nash will headline City Varieties Music Hall in Leeds on October 22 following the release of an album celebrating her first decade in music.

When I’m Alone: The Piano Retrospective as an evocative collection that reinterprets songs from her previous albums as well as covering well-known songs by Fleetwood Mac and the Dixie Chicks.

The songs of the latest release are said to sound fresh and vibrant, evoking feelings old and new, as she uses the piano to test each tune’s structural integrity.

She said: “When you take a song out of its production and strip it down to its basic elements you get the heart of the song. You can find out whether it can stand on its own, whether it’s a good song.

“When they come down to their basic bones, are these really meaningful pieces that stand on their own?”

Lissie last year released the top 10 record Castles, expanding her sound with new sonic palettes, incorporating synths and drum machines.

Lissie said the Piano Retrospective subtracted those elements, removing the noise and laying the songwriting bare for an emotive and powerful listening experience.

Singles from the album include title track ‘When I’m Alone’ from the year 2010, ‘Don’t You Give Up On Me’ from 2016, and the “astonishing, skin-tingling, crystal prism” that is Lissie’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams.

A spokesman said: “When I’m Alone: The Piano Retrospective is a typically bold move from Lissie, showing an artist confident in revisiting and reinterpreting before she makes her next step.”
