With nine original solo albums and three EPs to her credit, Toronto-based singer/songwriter Lily Frost is a beloved figure within the Canadian music scene. Over the course of those records, she has explored genres including indie folk, pop, swing, western—all with a touch of sass that landed song on TV shows such as Gray’s Anatomy, and in the 2001 film Crazy/Beautiful. But, like many of us, the fallout from the pandemic left Lily seriously questioning her future as a creative entity. Was there any point in carrying on if there were no opportunities to play shows? Was this the time to throw in the towel and move in a different direction?
As Lily searched for answers, loyal fans, promoters and her neighbour, producer Aaron Goldstein (Daniel Romano, Le Ren, Lee Harvey Osmond) convinced her she was a “lifer” and that there was so much music she still needed to share. Aarons’s drive convinced Lily to gather all the best songs from her overflowing arsenal and they set to work presenting Lily in her most real and raw musical setting to date. The results are contained on Decompression, a Lily Frost album unlike anything else in her catalogue, featuring the new single, “Drive All Night,” available now on all digital platforms and from lilyfrost.com.
“I am at the point where I want to share the songs I keep to myself, the ones that literally help me through life,” she says. “I’m not trying to be cool or get on the radio. I just want to share these real expressions that reveal the deeper truths. They are raw and vulnerable songs I normally play when no one’s looking, the songs I use to decompress. I hope they may speak to others on that deep-hearted level and maybe help them through as well.”
