Lisa Loeb Sweet On ‘Cherries’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Lisa Loeb thinks her fans have very good taste – which is why she’s giving them some Cherries.

That’s the title of Loeb’s latest recording, a digital-only release that features six songs that have been popular with her fans.

Loeb – who is best known for her 1994 No. 1 hit, “Stay (I Missed You)’ says most of the songs on Cherries have appeared on foreign releases and have been happily traded by her fans for years.

In her words, “These are songs I’ve wanted to include on the U.S. albums, not throwaways.”

But she’s especially sweet on the title cut, which is a version of her Dad’s favorite food-oriented song, “Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries.”

As she puts it, “Dad always wants me to record an album of food-oriented standards, and I couldn’t exactly record, ‘She’s My Cherry Pie.”’

Loeb considers the release the musical equivalent of an ice cream sundae for her fans to stave off their hunger for new music.

That is, until she finishes her next album, The Purple Tapes, an audio documentary of her life before she was signed to a record label.
