The last time I remember listening to AND
enjoying a Lisa Marie Presley
tune was back in 2003 when she released her first single, "Lights Out
" off her debut solo album, To Whom It May Concern
). Decidedly more ROCK
than it was pop, "Lights Out
" suited both Presley's which suited her sexy yet conservative bad girl image and edgy rock sound.
Sonically, Presley's new single, entitled "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" is very similar but not in a bad way. Like "Lights Out," the new song has those dark, spooky elements that make Lisa Marie Presley such an alluring artist. The accompanying Dean Karr-directed video serves as the PERFECT complement, with a Tim Burton-esque quality about it that lends itself particularly well as a visual parallel to the song. Check it out BELOW.
Produced by Grammy-winner T Bone Burnett (Counting Crows, Natalie Merchant), Storm & Grace is Presley's third album as well as her Universal Republic/XIX Recordings debut, serving as the follow up to her 2003 Gold-certified To Whom It May Concern and 2005's Now What, both of which debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart. Co-writing every song on the album, Presley had the pleasure of collaborating with a host of talented songwriters including Ed Harcourt (Lauren Pritchard, Paloma Faith), Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, KT Tunstall), Sacha Skarbek (Neneh Cherry, Adele), Steve Booker (Duffy, Stevie Nicks) and more.
In addition to promoting the album with this upcoming tour, Lisa Marie Presley
has also been making the rounds, performing on a variety of TV including on American Idol
, Good Morning America
, The Tonight Show With Jay Len
o, and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Released on May 15th
