WATCH // Lia Ices Shares New Video For “Higher”, Expands Tour Dates, New Album ‘Ices’ Out Sept. 16.

Only three weeks away from her sophomore album, Ices, Lia Ices shares the video for her newest single “Higher“, via Paper. The video, directed by Lia, was shot cruising/exploring around Jamaica by film maker Storm Saulter (Better Mus’ Come) with additional camera work by Bryan Ling and Andrew Marianai. Watch the video above or on Youtube / Vevo.

From Lia -
“The making of this album continuously took us out of our familiar world. During our time in jamaica we found a levity and openness we tapped into – an energy that is at the core of the song, and of this whole album. We just had fun. When you can be limitless with your experiences, give into other cultures, sounds, and people, the more you actually feel like yourself.”

Lia has a few dates peppered around September before going on tour with Phantogram. Full dates are below.

Pre-order the new album Ices out September 16th via iTunes, Amazon, Jagjaguwar, and your local record store.

Sharon Van Etten Adds Dates to Tour! See Her this Spring!

Following a sold-out show at NYC’s Mercury Lounge and a late night tv performance on Fallon, Sharon Van Etten has now added nine dates to her spring tour. Her eagerly anticipated album, Tramp, comes out in just under two weeks on February 7th. Available for pre-order NOW.

Critics and fans alike are jumping behind this talented songstress and for good reason. Not only is her new album a superb piece of work, but Sharon conquers the stage in her live shows. Spin Magazine said this about her Mercury performance, “Judging by her brilliant performance and the electric mood in the room, she isn’t likely to be playing spaces this intimate much longer.” For a fortunate few in those nine additional stops, they’ll get to see just what everyone is talking about. Purchase your tickets soon though; shows are selling out worldwide! You can view the full list of dates HERE. If you missed Sharon on WNYC’s Soundcheck, watch her performance of “Give Out” above or stream the entire show HERE.
