AIMEE MANN RELEASES LOST IN SPACE
Tour Dates Scheduled Throughout the US
Considered one of our generation's greatest songwriters, Aimee Mann's every move has been followed by an adoring media and a fiercely loyal fan base throughout her 15-year career. Nominated for several 2001 Grammy Awards and an Oscar (for her work on the motion picture Magnolia), Mann's last solo album, Bachelor No. 2 was heralded as one of the best releases of 2000. Released on her own SuperEgo Records, the long-awaited Bachelor was met with rave reviews, and inadvertently turned Mann into a leading spokesperson for recording artists rights and SuperEgo into an archetype on how to succeed outside of the traditional record company business model.
On Lost In Space (in stores August 27 on SuperEgo Records), Mann sets some of her wry and introspective lyrics against layers of instrumentation, a bold step forward for an artist best known for her semi-acoustic songs. In "Invisible Ink" and "It's Not," Mann enlists a 14-piece string section to accompany her. The strings return for "Nightmare Girl," one of two new songs that will be available exclusively on a three song, limited edition bonus CD, available to those who pre-order Lost In Space at www.aimeemann.com or while supplies last at select retailers. Lost In Space also reveals Mann's fascination with the human psyche, and is filled with lyrics on the power of addiction and obsession. As she told Rollingstone.com, "I think everybody has that kind of behavior, everybody has that tendency at various times...people can have a direction that seems healthy, like they exercise all the time or work constantly and so it's hard to call 'em on it, although it's really clear it comes from this really obsessive place."
While it's no surprise that Mann delivers remarkable lyrics and delicate song structures, she also spreads her artistic wings by co-producing with Michael Lockwood, and by playing an array of instruments including the acoustic guitar, bass, piano and various percussion. And she continues to defy conventional record industry wisdom, allowing her fans to hear her entire album six weeks prior to the street date by streaming it at <http://www.aimeemann.com/>www.aimeemann.com. Aimee has also been seen on television with recent performances on the Tonight Show and Craig Kilborn, as well as special appearances on the West Wing and a recent episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.
