Liz Phair is known for wearing her heart on her sleeve and sharing her most intimate feelings with her fans through passionate lyrics. When she first hit the scene, those feelings were pretty angsty, which is part of the reason her album Exile in Guyville spoke to me as a teen.
Well, if her song "Faith and Tenderness" is any indication, Phair's days of romantic angst could be behind her for now. Here is a gentler Phair singing about the calming effects of love ("Just floating along/I'll follow you forever") and how willing she is to go with the flow to be with the one she needs. It's lovely and easy on the ears. The song will apparently appear on her next studio album, but you can download it now.
