The 3 Way is a 1999 album by the American indie rock band, Lilys.

The album continued Lilys leader Kurt Heasley's 60's rock influence, with Pitchfork Media's Michael Sandlin stating "Heasley's ransacking encompasses almost the entire stylistic sprawl of the '60s on the groove- a- minute shindig that is The 3-Way," with the influence of The Kinks strongly in evidence.[4]
