Lily Kershaw has released her sophomore album 'Arcadia'

Watch the video for her new single 'Always & Forever'

Last week, Los Angeles singer/songwriter Lily Kershaw released her anticipated sophomore full-length album 'Arcadia'. Weaving warmer analog sounds like organ, harpsichord and guitar with cinematic force, thanks in part to producer Ben Cooper (Radical Face), 'Arcadia' is Lily’s most intimate release to date. But the strongest tool she wields is her voice, both in the simmering ferocity it carries and the poetry it speaks. Though the concept behind the record is epic to say the least, Lily is ultimately telling a story of acceptance, both of herself and the great mystery that is the universe. 

To celebrate, Lily shares a new video for album track ‘Always & Forever’, a song she co-wrote with her dear friend, actress Emma Roberts. While she’s primarily known as a folk-pop artist, Lily consistently pushes the limitations of that label. Originally written as a guitar-based tune, she instinctively decided to add synth, creating an 80s sonic texture without succumbing to any of the tropes found in today’s new wave nostalgia.  

‘Arcadia’ is the follow up Lily’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Midnight In The Garden’ (2013) and her follow up EP ‘Lost Angeles’ (2018). In song and spirit, Lily is an old soul, but upon initial meeting she's kinetic, ebullient, lively, and kind, quick with a joke and an infectious smile. Lily is a compulsive creator, she jots down melodies and lyrics as she’s wandering through her days. Born and mostly raised in Los Angeles, she offers an antidote to the long-mythologized Los Angeles glitz; she’s authentic, and honest, self-effacing and, above all, she is herself. 

Lily recently wrapped up an extensive North American tour with Joshua Radin and The Weepies presented by SiriusXM’s Coffee House. She’ll join Radin in the new year at his dates in Paris on January 29th at Café de la Danse and in London on February 1st at Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Stay tuned for more news and tour announcements from Lily Kershaw.
