Lillie Mae led a sequestered childhood touring in a motorhome with her musician parents, constricted by religious boundaries. In her adolescence she busked from RV parks to the Rio Grande, swept through Nashville clubs, and achieved Top 40 country status in her sibling group Jypsi, but on Other Girls, a new side of herself emerges with more to say than ever before.
Lillie Mae’s newest album Other Girls released August 2019 on Third Man Records, shares a new song and video “You’ve Got Other Girls For That” via an interview with Rolling Stone. The album features eleven new, original songs written by Lillie Mae, produced by Grammy-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A.
From the new track’s opening line, “I ain’t your baby,” the Nashville singer, songwriter, downtown scene slayer, and most-wanted fiddler signals a reclaimed confidence and bold evolution, telling women’s stories – including her own – that build on the strength of her “nervy” (NPR Music), 2017 Jack White-produced debut.
She embraces personal triumphs on “I Came For The Band (For Show),” breathes new perspective into “Terlingua Girl,” a song she wrote as a 19-year-old in the South-Texan desert, and professes brave truths as heard in “You’ve Got Other Girls for That.” After a vagabond past, crossing paths with hundreds of musicians, she limits the cast of Other Girls to just her brother, sister, and a few trusted collaborators.
