Liz Phair has unveiled her long-awaited seventh studio set, Soberish, via Chrysalis Records. Stream it now on Apple Music and Spotify.
Along with the lead single “Good Side”, which was first shared in 2019, the 13-track LP also includes previously released tracks “Hey Lou”, “Spanish Doors” and “In There”. Soberish marks Phair’s first new work in eleven years. The project sees her reunite with producer Brad Wood, who worked with singer-songwriter on his 1993 debut album, Exile in Guyville, as well as on Whip-Smart in 1994 and Whitechocolatespaceegg in 1998.

It’s completely surprising for us too, how we sound together.
“One of the things that’s so great about Brad,” she continued, “is that he has a memory like a steel trap. Like, he can tell you exactly what plug-in we have. used on Guyville or Whip-Smart or whatever stuff we worked on together, so we kind of took the approach of, “Let’s use the Guyville alphabet, but rewrite it in a language. totally different. “I really wanted us to feel on a surprising basis, so we were looking and pushing towards the new for ourselves. But we used a lot of the sounds from our previous incarnation, if you will.
