Liz Phair Celebrates Exile In Guyville
It’s been 30 years since Liz Phair released her highly influential and debut album, Exile In Guyville, via Matador Records. The record is still influencing scores of young singer/songwriters around the globe
This fall, Matador will also reissue Exile in Guyville on limited-edition purple vinyl. The 2xLP is available for pre-order now and will be out October 20th.
To celebrate, Phair has made a long-lost studio outtake available to stream. “Miss Lucy” was recorded with Brad Wood during sessions for Exile in Guyville but left off the album in favor of including “Flower.” An early demo version of the song was made available previously as part of the Girly-Sound tapes.
In November, Phair will celebrate the record by launching a full band US tour and performing Exile In Guyville in its entirety (along with some additional hits) at some of the largest venues of her career. Blondshell will open all dates.
In the years following Exile In Guyville, Phair has continued to defy expectations and break barriers. She has released five albums, sold over five million records, composed music for television, and received two GRAMMY nominations. In 2019, she published a memoir, Horror Stories (Random House), which the LA Times called “a raw look at fame, motherhood and aging with all the unbridled honesty of the songs that put the singer in the spotlight in the first place.” On her most recent full-length, Soberish (2021), Phair reunited with Exile in Guyville producer Brad Wood.
In 2018, Matador Records reissued Exile in Guyville and released a deluxe box set titled Girly-Sound to Guyville, which included the remastered original album and the first official restored audio of 1991’s Girly-Sound tapes – early Phair works that were self-released on cassette.
