Live Gig Video: Lissie shares her new farm in Iowa with us in ‘Don’t You Give Up On Me’ promo

American singer/songwriter Lissie will be releasing her third album ‘My Wild West’ in mid-February, and an early single from the upcoming album now has its own promo video. The promo for ‘Don’t You Give Up on Me’ was filmed in Lissie’s new digs; last year she made the move from California to her own newly purchased, 10-acre farm in Iowa. From the artist’s own words, the timing of the filming of the video seems to have been serendipitous:

I loved the idea of filming this video on my land and we really lucked out when we hit record and the snow started falling. The fields and trees in white were breathtaking! Sitting in the back of my dodge ram pickup and singing as we passed these open glistening spaces was really special. It’s all a bit of a dream and I’m happy to have broken the farm in with a video for a song that means a lot to me as I head into my next chapter.

The upbeat track doesn’t waver between the shots of Lissie in the dark while the snow is falling and those of her riding along in the wilderness by daylight. But it’s an interesting contrast, as ‘My Wild West’ was recorded with producer Curt Schneider in his Studio City home, thousands of miles west in a much more urban environment. Despite that, Lissie says this album is her most personal effort to date, and she’s now much more comfortable in her own skin and has come into her own as an artist: “I’m in a really good place. In fact, I’m already planning a follow-up album, ‘My Mild Midwest’.” Ha!

Both ‘Don’t You Give Up on Me’ the single and ‘My Wild West’ the album will be released on the same day, on the 12th of February on Cooking Vinyl. To read our previous review of the single, head this way. For all past articles of Lissie on TGTF, follow this link.
