Liz Phair Hopes to be ‘Somebody’s Miracle’

On the heels of the most critically reviled album of her career, 2003’s slick, self-titled effort, fallen indie rock goddess Liz Phair is set to release her second major label album this fall. Somebody’s Miracle is out October 4 on Capitol, and while her last album was panned for being too poppy, Phair promises that her upcoming release will be a combination of pop and indie. “I like demos and I like high pop production and I like straight American rock and I like jazzy, minor trippy chords. I like it all,” Phair said in a press release. The first single off Somebody’s Miracle is called “Everything to Me.” Fresh off an appearance at Lollapalooza, Liz is currently on an eight-city acoustic tour, which kicked off July 26 in Boston and ends on August 19 in San Francisco.
