Liz Phair Shares New Song ‘Hey Lou’


Liz Phair shared a new song, “Hey Lou.” The single from the renowned singer-songwriter and guitarist is her first new song in two years.

Phair will also release her first album of new material, Soberish, this year following her 2010 LP, Funstyle. To produce “Hey Lou,” Phair tapped longtime producer and collaborator Brad Wood, who produced her classic ’90s albums Exile In Guyville and Whip-Smart. The song is an homage to the romance between Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson.

“Have you ever wondered what love looks like for your favorite celebrity couple behind closed doors?” Phair said in a statement. “‘Hey Lou’ imagines a day in the life of two music legends, whose union was an inspiration for rock bands and a source of curiosity for die hard romantics.”

“Hey Lou” also arrived with an accompanying music video, “which features possibly the only puppets ever made of Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson,” as per a press release. Watch the video for “Hey Lou” below:

Phair will also perform her first-ever livestream dubbed Hey Lou Hey Liz on March 3 which will feature Brad Wood. Head here for ticket info.
