BETTER DAYS (remastered)!
August 27, 2021






Better Days (remastered), scheduled for release October 2021, is a re-imagining of Lili's October 2019 album Better Days. Just as the album was beginning to pick up some momentum COVID hit, and the record never had a real chance to be heard or supported by live performances. This time Lili's co-producer Dale Melton who recorded, mixed and mastered the album was able to revisit it with fresh ears and make improvements. With two additional remastered tracks and new artwork the album is being properly marketed to radio stations and reviewers. One of the special bonus tracks is a live version of "Got Me Thinking" recorded at NPR station WRTI in Philadelphia. This stunning live track has never been publicly heard until now. The other bonus track "Climb The Wall" is one of Lili's most compelling songs from her 2013 album I Can See Bliss From Here. In its remastered form the song sits perfectly with Better Days (remastered). This captivating album is sure to please fans and critics alike. The first leg of the tour to support the record is booked with more to follow.
Better Days (remastered) available for pre-order now! Click on the Bandcamp logo:
