Mia Dyson reveals vinyl reissue of her acclaimed 2005 Parking Lots LP + Digital release Parking Lots (Revisited) anniversary EP + 2021 Australian East Coast tour dates on sale now

Australian icon Mia Dyson is thrilled to be reissuing her ARIA Award-winning 2005 album Parking Lots on vinyl, celebrating the 15-year milestone release with an additional Parking Lots (Revisited) EP and 2021 East Coast Tour.

Heading back into the studio in 2020 to revisit five songs from the album, Mia’s Parking Lots (Revisited) EP sheds new light on a selection of her favourite cuts from the record. From beloved single ‘Roll Me Out’ to the stunning homage of motherly love on ‘Rivers Wide’, and the simple yet captivating title track to the empowering ‘Choose’ and heartbreaking ‘I Meant Something To You Once’, the EP captures the sheer musical mastery of an artist who continues to redefine the blues and roots genre, 15 years on, with the rest of her expansive career still to come.

“Some of my friends and I used to perform in a women’s prison in Western Melbourne. I got to know a few women quite well and over time they shared their stories with me. I wrote Roll Me Out thinking of the story of one woman in particular who had been incarcerated, and then fell in love with another prisoner.” – Mia Dyson

Parking Lots (Revisited) EP Track Listing
1. Roll Me Out
2. Rivers Wide
3. Parking Lots
4. Choose
5. I Meant Something To You Once

“I had my heart broken first not by a lover, but by a friend in high school. It stung a lot and a long time and eventually ended up in this song. Before, when we were about 13, my friend picked up the guitar and started writing. She inspired me to do the same and I’m eternally grateful.” – Mia Dyson

In her two-decade long career, Mia Dyson has been nominated for five ARIA Awards with Parking Lots taking out ‘Best Blues and Roots Album’ in 2005. She was the inaugural recipient of Double J’s Artist Of The Year at the 2014 J Awards following the release of her Australian classic LP Idyllwild, and has had four albums up for AIR Awards with The Moment earning her a nomination for ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 2013 APRA AwardsMia Dyson’s extensive career has seen her support the likes of Stevie Nicks, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt and Joe Cocker, and most recently touring extensively with her band Dyson Stringer Cloher.
