Acclaimed singer-songwriter Liz Phair has released a new video for her single, “Spanish Doors.”
“Spanish Doors” is the first single from Phair’s new album, Soberish, which is out June 4th. Soberish is Phair’s first record in 11 years and was co-produced with Brad Wood, who helmed Exile In Guyville, and Whip-Smart.
Phair describes the song as being “about the fracturing of a beautiful life, when everything you counted on is suddenly thrown up for grabs.” She explains, “I drew inspiration from a friend who was going through a divorce, but the actions in the lyrics are my own. I relate to hiding out in the bathroom when everyone around you is having a good time, but your life just fell apart. You look at yourself in the mirror and wonder who you are now, shadows of doubt creeping into your eyes. Just a few moments ago you were a whole, confident person and now you wonder how you’ll ever get the magic back.” The inventive musical sections vault over each other in an exhilarating rush and the contradictory emotions in the layered vocals speak to a universal truth that when bad news arrives, it never picks a good time.
