LILY & MADELEINE’S KEEP IT TOGETHER OUT TODAY ON NEW WEST RECORDS

NATIONWIDE TOUR CONFIRMED

Lily & Madeleine’s anticipated new full-length album, Keep It Together, is out today on New West Records (iTunes).

This is the third full-length album from the acclaimed sister duo and is already receiving widespread critical acclaim:


“Lily and Madeleine have been gifted with ‘blood harmony’; their voices were born at home together, share familial characteristics, and lock in perfectly with one another, sounding rich and effortless.” —Baeble Music

“…a musical dreamscape.” —Entertainment Weekly

“…a more dynamic and mature sound…” —Indianapolis Star

“…pure beauty…The harmonies from these Indiana-based sisters have always been outstanding. But now on their third album, Keep It Together, Lily and Madeleine have added more texture to their songs.” —NPR Music

“…melding harmonies in that special way only simpatico siblings can.” —Paste Magazine

“Lily and Madeleine have been craving a change: Their new album…is built from the desire to be taken seriously and the knowledge that comes with becoming an adult in the world.” —Rookie Magazine

“Lily & Madeleine prove there’s still beauty in the world, and that sisterly love, coupled naturally with evolving talent, can make for an impassively powerful album.” —Under the Radar

In celebration of the release, the sisters will embark on a U.S tour this March, which includes shows at New York’s Joe’s Pub, Nashville’s The High Watt and L.A.’s The Troubadour. See below for complete tour dates.

Recorded at home in Bloomington, Ind. with producer Paul Mahern, who also helmed Lily & Madeleine’s lauded debut and sophomore albums, the 10-song record features the help of friends and touring band members Shannon Hayden (cello, mandolin, guitar, Moog) and Kate Siefker (drums, percussion, guitar, bass).

Of the project, Madeleine comments, “Working with a closer knit team of just four ladies helped tighten our sound and unify each track into a complete collection. The title of the album is a lyric from the first track ‘Not Gonna,’ which Lily wrote. This simple phrase has a lot of meaning to us: keep your shit together, keep our relationship as sisters together, pressure to keep our image a certain way as young ladies.”

Lily adds, “Along with reflecting on the personal bonds that Madeleine and I both have, I also really wanted to focus more on the bigger picture and write about the experience of being a white woman in America and a college­age kid in the 21st century. As I attempt to further discover who I am as an individual, the way society wants me to define myself is becoming clearer. It seems to me that young people are the same everywhere: regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic class. All young adults are in the same boat, trying to figure out what makes us individuals and trying to find our value in society.”

The new recording comes on the heels of the prolific duo’s highly-regarded sophomore release, Fumes, and is the their third full-length album in three years, following an EP and two LPs on Sufjan Stevens’ label Asthmatic Kitty. Of their last effort ELLE Magazine asserted, “...the twosome, known for their pinpoint harmonies and vocal precision, had no reservations about flipping the script this go-round: They amped up the production and gave their new album…a far more bombastic sound,” while NPR Music praised, “Fumes is a misleading record, the way a masterfully performed dance is misleading: It looks easy only because the complexities behind it are unfathomable to outsiders. There’s a borderlessness to Lily & Madeleine that leans from seamlessly natural to mesmerizingly preternatural, hinting at deeper forces at work than skill and practice.” Since their debut in 2013, the duo has performed on CBS’ “This Morning,” KCRW’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic,” NPR Music’s “Tiny Desk Concert” series and “A Prairie Home Companion.”
