Seattle’s All the Real Girls have shared their new single “Lizzie” off of their debut album Elk City. “Lizzie” is one of the twelve songs on the album that were all inspired by the hilarious and sometimes tragic stories told by an eccentric, 70-something year old chainsmoker named Jo who singer-songwriter Peter Donovan met while shooting the independent film Lost On Purpose.
“‘Lizzie’ is about a pair of people, with a bit of a tumultuous romantic past, who stumble upon each other a couple years or so after the fact. At first, they’re just doing their best to be cordial, rehashing old memories, old regrets, laughing about how bad they were for each other. But, by the end of the night, they’ve both completely convinced themselves that this disaster might have actually been the one true love of their lifetime.”
Elk City, was produced by John Goodmanson (Nada Surf, Sleater-Kinney, Los Campesinos!) and features Jason McGerr (Death Cab For Cutie), Jim Roth (Built To Spill), Steve Fisk (Pell Mell), Eric Corson (The Long Winters), Eric Howk (The Lashes) & Shelby Earl.
