It's Loeb's first album since 1998's "Firecracker," which peaked at No. 88 on The Billboard 200 and featured the single "I Do," which reached No. 18 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart.
"Cake and Pie" features collaborations with producer Glen Ballard (Dave Matthews Band, Alanis Morissette) and songwriter Dweezil Zappa. "Someone You Should Know" has been tapped as the first single; album track "We Could Still Belong Together" was previously released on the soundtrack to the 2001 film "Legally Blonde."
"The songwriting's more combined with telling a story," Loeb said in a statement. "The rock is more intensely rock, the acoustic songs are more intensely acoustic, the orchestral songs more intensely orchestral." A tour with her band Nine Stories is in the planning stages for later this year.
Loeb rocketed to stardom after her song "Stay (I Missed You)" was included on the soundtrack to the 1994 film "Reality Bites." The track eventually hit No. 1 on The Billboard Hot 100, making Loeb the first unsigned artist ever to top the chart.
