Liz Phair is back. The songstress announced on Friday (Oct. 11) that a new album will be coming sometime in the next year.

The new project will be her first since 2010's Funstyle. In celebration of the announcement, Phair dropped "Good Side," which she told Stereogum is thematically related to her recent autobiography, Horror Stories, and “captures the optimism and acceptance I feel even in the face of disappointments.”

The track also marks her reunion with Brad Wood, who produced her 1993 debut Exile in Guvyille. "I think the comprehensive and gorgeous reissue of my first record plus the Girly-Sound track made me nostalgic for the old days – thinking about the mindset we had when we were just starting out," she said.

Listen to "Good Side" below, and look out for Phair's new album in the spring of 2020.
