Nashville, Tennessee based Lilly Hiatt is releasing her third album ‘Trinity Lane’ via New West Records. The singer-songwriter, performer and daughter of John Hiatt readies an autobiographical album that dives deep into her sobriety, written during a period of self-reflection and renewal in her East Nashville apartment.
Being the daughter of John Hiatt, she keeps the family tradition alive, mixing Southern influences – Americana, folk and left-of-center country, with a raw approach that's better suited to the garage than the saloon. The album's title track is no exception. Written after a West Coast tour alongside John Moreland, the song finds Hiatt making peace with her old demons, while guitars crash and pianos chime in the background.
Produced by Shovels & Rope's Michael Trent, "Trinity Lane" is an empowerment anthem stocked with details from Hiatt's everyday life, from the name of her street to the smell of her neighbor's cooking. The song's video follows suit, offering a four-minute look into Hiatt's home life. Released today, the clip finds Hiatt waking up, drinking coffee and eventually hitting the streets for a quick joyride. Along the way, we're given glimpses of the music, friends and pets that fill her days. Her cat, Popsicle, makes more than a few appearances, as do records and cassette tapes by some of favorite artists, including Pearl Jam, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Little Feat.
Although written in isolation, much of the album – particularly the title track, with its punky punch and breezy bounce – is built for the outdoors."By the time the guitar solo happens," Hiatt insists, "I wanna be going over 50 miles per hour at least."
