EDITORS’ NOTES

Lisa Loeb has spent most of her adult life in public. "Stay (I Missed You)" introduced her to the world in 1994 with a hook so strong that she's spent her music career chasing its success. Reality TV and food shows have kept her in the public eye while her albums failed to gain much traction with the pop market. Children's music, however, provided her with a chance to access her gentle and silly side. Now married with children, she's putting the adult pieces back together in song. New Found Glory's Chad Gilbert co-produced the sessions with Loeb and adds key electric guitar parts. "Ami, I'm Sorry," cowritten with Marvin Etzioni, plays like a letter to an old-time fan who misses the old Lisa, who held a room with just her acoustic guitar. (Loeb does just that on the sparse and beautiful Bright Eyes bonus track, "First Day of My Life.") The title track, cowritten with Maia Sharp, and "The '90s," cowritten with Gilbert, bring out Loeb's sharpest pop ear and even play around with people's perceptions about her and what her life should be like.
