Twenty years ago, Natalie Merchant parted ways with her longtime 10,000 Maniacs bandmates and released her first solo effort, the 1995 multi-platinum selling Tigerlily. In the two decades since, both she and the songs from Tigerlily have matured and changed together, so last summer, Merchant re-recorded the 11 songs with different arrangements, inspired by how they had evolved over time in the live setting.

Along with her music career, Merchant remains dedicated to a wide array of social justice and environmental causes as well as the arts.  In 2005 she served a four-year term on the 20-member board of New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA).  Recently her attention has been focused on the threats to public health and the environment posed by the natural gas extraction technique of hydraulic fracturing.  In 2013 she spearheaded the making of a protest concert film, Dear Governor Cuomo, with New Yorkers Against Fracking, actors Mark Ruffalo and Melissa Leo, and filmmakers Jon Bowermaster and Alex Gibney.  In 2014 Merchant directed and produced SHELTER: A Concert Film to Benefit Victims of Domestic Violence.
