US singer-songwriter Lissie has announced plans to release her fourth studio album, ‘Castles’.

Following the release of the album, Lissie will play three UK shows, at Glasgow Oran Mor on April 6, Manchester Gorilla on April 8 and London Omeara on April 10. ‘Castles’ was written largely from Lissie’s new home in rural Iowa and sees her experimenting with a new dream-pop sound.

Earlier this year she released the song ‘Boyfriend’, which will also feature on the forthcoming album. Lissie also recently featured in the Twin Peaks comeback series, playing her song ‘Wild West’. NME said of the appearance:

“If long fringes, plaid shirts and soaring indie-pop ballads are your bag then you’ll have loved Lissie’s intense Twin Peaks debut last week. Closing the episode with the Stevie Nicks-esque ‘Wild West’, Rock Island’s most exciting troubadour more than earned her Lynch-commissioned screen time.”
