Liz Phair is recording a double album with help from Ryan Adams
Liz Phair is back in the studio, and she’s brought along some help.
The singer-songwriter tapped Ryan Adams to join in the recording process for her upcoming studio effort. Adams, who was snapping photos of the session, announced that Phair’s first record since 2010 would be a double album.
“Today we begin the new @PhizLair double album!!! #LizPhair #ExileInPaxAmVille,” tweeted Adams. “Unreal. 5 songs in 1 day. All analog. Back to those sounds & that rawness I first heard on Exile. @PhizLair is an American treasure.”
Phair released her first two albums — 1993’s Exile in Guyville and 1994’s Whip-Smart — back to back. Since then, her records have been more spaced out, with her most recent albums coming out in 2005 (Somebody’s Miracle) and 2010 (Funstyle).
A prolific producer, Adams’ next solo album Prisoner is due Feb. 17.
