It’s been some time coming, but Lisa Mitchell is finally back with some brand new music and an exciting new tour. To launch her brand new single “Spiritus,” Lisa will appropriately play in some of the country’s most beautiful churches.
Lisa wrote “Spiritus,” which means breath or life-force, at her parents’ country home before recording it with old pal Dann Hume.
“We filled it with light rhythmic energy and percussion from all over the world! It became full of people and voices and laughter and spirit,” she explained.
Surely that spirit will be present when Lisa takes the song and others from her forthcoming follow-up to Wonder to the country’s churches.
“How romantic it will be to play the first tour for my new album inside beautiful historic churches!” Lisa gushed in a press release. “I am so looking forward to sharing these special shows with the talented band that I’ve found and with the listeners that find themselves in the pews! And I haven’t even mentioned, the darling men of Georgia Fair will be kicking off the evening with their floating harmonies! What an incredible tour we have to look forward to.”
“Spiritus” is available digitally now ahead of the release of the Spiritus EP early in May. Tickets for her very cool Heavenly Sounds shows are on sale tomorrow through Ticketek.
