Liz Phair

Phair Back on Tour

Liz Phair will preview songs from her upcoming album, Somebody's Miracle, in an acoustic tour this summer. Appearing at small venues in eight U.S. cities, Phair will also perform material from Exile In Guyville, Whip-Smart, whitechocolatespaceegg and her 2003 self-titled album.

Phair will play Lollapalooza in
Chicago on July 23, 2005 before kicking off the acoustic tour in Boston on July 26th. Highlights include two nights at Joe's Pub in New York (August 1st and 2nd) and three nights at Los Angeles' Troubadour (August 10th, 11th and 12th).

Somebody's Miracle, produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Jason Mraz) and John Shanks (Sheryl Crow, Chris Isaak, Melissa Etheridge), will be released by Capitol Records on October 4th. Phair recorded the album at The Village Studios in
West Los Angeles.

"I wouldn't say it sounds like old Liz Phair, but it's definitely more band-driven than pop," Phair recently told Spin. "The last record had a lot more shebang in the production; this has a lot more emphasis on the songs."
