To know the album is to know the film.  The new LP features Merchant’s rerecording of her first solo effort, 1995’s Tigerlily.  The film, presented in memoir style, studies the impact those 11 songs had on Merchant and her audience.  Covering her entire career, the documentary uses live and archival footage as well as interviews to show Tigerlily’s influence on Merchant, her fans and fellow musicians.

Fans pre-ordering the film and album via or Merchant’s website will receive an instant download of the track “Carnival.”
