Iconic legend Lisa Loeb's new album No Fairy Tale is available now on pre-order. The songs are fresh, well produced, perfectly crafted and fun. The collaborative nature of the album reveals the diverse range of talents she brings in as a musician and songwriter.
On the excellent advice of multiple friends, Loeb also finds strong success in working with Marvin Etzioni, as well as co-writing the classic title track with Maia Sharp (having created the song together while on a special European retreat).
The world needs more of this level of music. The album entices new and long-term fans to ask for and demand this type of real dynamic musicianship and playful but serious songwriting. The melodies are powerful and the sounds bring a range of emotions. The lyrics flow with the music, balancing between moments of ironic counterpoint and moments of powerful reinforcement, with the vibrations pulsating into your consciousness.
Intelligent, hook-filled tunes capture you so that you'll want to ask them to "Stay" in your head because hearing this update on her classic sound will remind you of what you simply don't want to miss.
There is too much great material to highlight all of it, and it would be a shame to spoil all the classic wordplay, irony, and strong production that proves great pop is no fairy tale. So, the most important thing is enjoying the much anticipated music itself.
