Natalie Merchant Tigerlily

Tigerlily is an album by singer-songwriter Natalie Merchant, released on June 20, 1995 (see 1995 in music). Her first solo album, after splitting from the 10,000 Maniacs, Tigerlily is more rock-oriented than her previous work. The album received mixed reviews, with many praising Merchant's confessional writing style, and other criticizing the same for undue sentimentality.

The song "River" is a tribute to River Phoenix. Tigerlily peaked at #13 on Billboard's Top 200 album countdown.

Tigerlily was re-released in 1999 as a 2-cd set, with the second cd containing a remix of the song Jealousy and live cuts from her tour.
