"An album that uses the richness of the American musical catalog
to pave new ground." - Rolling Stone

Third Man recording artist Lillie Mae is proud to release her new Jack White-produced album Forever and Then Some today. The release comes just a day after she performed on Conan -- watch "Over The Hill and Through The Woods" HERE, and the web-only performance of "To Go Wrong" HERE. In addition to the digital release, a limited edition 7" will be released for Record Store Day 2017 on April 22, as well as a limited edition smoke-colored (clear with white wisps) 12" LP.
The album received a great deal of advance praise leading up to its release. Rolling Stone praised "Over The Hill And Through The Woods" for "melding unique old-time vocal breaks, a rich sonic chug that evokes some Seventies rock psychedelia and evocative storytelling;" Stereogum lauded "Honky Tonks And Taverns" as "an expertly polished, delightfully upbeat track;" and Elle noted that the album is "filled with songs that showcase her songwriting talent, blending pop heartbreak with country joy -- kind of like if Robyn spent some quality time with Willie Nelson."
Lillie Mae was also included in NPR's esteemed "Austin 100" in advance of SXSW 2017, and was named one of "10 Country Artists You Need To Know" by Rolling Stone. Entertainment Weekly included Lillie Mae in their "Breaking Big" column, praising "Over The Hill and Through The Woods" as "a stomping lament for a restless heart." People Magazine did the same in their "People's Pick" column, noting that "Mae's warm, self-assured vocal twang is rivaled by her vivid storytelling."
Lillie Mae will start a run of shows supporting Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals on April 28 in New Orleans, followed by festival dates this Summer and additional shows to be announced soon. For tickets, more information, and updates, please visit www.lilliemaemusic.com.
