ALBUM ANNOUNCE // Lia Ices Shares “Thousand Eyes” Lyric Video, New Album ‘Ices’ Out 9/16



Very happy to welcome back Lia Ices with the announcement of her new album Ices out on September 16th on Jagjaguwar. Following up 2011’s acclaimed Grown Unknown, the new album was produced by Benny Sagittarius [production team of Lia and her brother Eliot] and support from Clams Casino on several tracks. You can experience the first single “Thousand Eyes,” off the new album via an enthralling video directed by Dougal Henken that features artwork by Hugo Barros. Watch the “Thousand Eyes” video above or here on YouTube.

Pre-order the new album via iTunes, Amazon, Jagjaguwar, and your local record.

On making the new album, Lia explains,

“Each song on the record became a collage of times, places, and people. Most of them started in the Hudson Valley, where Eliot and I wrote and recorded vocals, guitars, synths, and beat ideas.

“We’d send those first incarnations to Clams Casino in New Jersey and then we’d meet up in Brooklyn to arrange the new parts together. We worked in the penthouse of the Wythe Hotel – a floating glass box. We’d set up our computer, mixing speakers, midi keyboards, and all our weird gear, plus thai food and red wine. We’d bring up one of our demos and we’d sit behind the midi keyboard and sift through sounds and ideas and beats and find new things together.

“After those Wythe Sessions (in Brooklyn) we took different tracks to Woodstock and Los Angeles to layer in live drums and percussion, and I went to Atlanta to record final vocals. For the first time, Lia Ices felt like an inclusive project with its own identity, not just a name.”
