U.K.-based Chrysalis Records has signed singer-songwriter Liz Phair for the release of her forthcoming album.
Phair will be releasing her seventh album, Soberish, next year. Phair has sold close to five million records worldwide and been nominated twice for a Grammy.
Phair debuted with the breakthrough 1993 album, Exile in Guyville. She followed it up with five more studio albums, including Whip-Smart and 2003’s Liz Phair.
“I could not be more proud to be signed to Chrysalis, a legendary label that has found a new and exciting iteration with Robin and Jeremy,” Phair said. “From our first call, I was struck by their intelligence and musical sensitivity. The level of communication was beyond anything I had hoped for. They hear the way I hear.”
“I feel like I have found a home at Chrysalis and that we will do great work together,” she added. “I am humbled and honoured to embark on this next part of my career in the sure and steady hands of some of the best in the business.”
Chrysalis’ latest signing follows that of Laura Marling, whose Mercury Prize-nominated album, Song For Our Daughter, was released in April by the relaunched label in partnership with Partisan Records.
