Liz Phair celebrates the 25th anniversary of her landmark album Exile In Guyville with a boxset. Girly-Sound To Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Boxset will be released on 7LPs or 3CDs and includes a remastered version of the groundbreaking album along with restored audio of the complete set of the previously unreleased Girly-Sound tapes. The set also includes an extensive book featuring essays by Liz Phair, an oral history, previously unpublished photos, unreleased artwork, memorabilia, and more. The boxset will be released on May 4th and is available to pre-order now.

The big draw of this boxset is twofold: Exile In Guyville has been out of print on vinyl for years. But the most exciting and exclusive component is the inclusion of the Girly-Sound tapes. In 1991 Phair recorded three cassettes of her songs using the name Girly-Sound. She dubbed copies for her friends, but never released the cassettes. As time went on, copies of the tapes circulated and eventually came to the attention of Matador, who were blown away by Phair's raw, uncompromising sound and went on to sign her, and the rest is history. Years later the cassettes are released officially for the first time as part of the boxset.

Today Phair shared the Girly-Sound version of "Divorce Song" plus announced a handful of live dates in support of the release (no Detroit date). Check it all out along with the full tracklisting for Girly-Sound To Guyville: The 25th Anniversary Boxset below.
