On December 1st 2017  LILLY released her fourth album, Tenderly (feat. Gilad Hekselman).

I am touched and deeply impressed by Lillys new album, Tenderly... So touched and impressed, that I have to say, that Tenderly is not only Lillys best release until date, but one of the recent years best Danish vocaljazzalbums!”
