Listen to Liz Phair’s ‘Hey Lou’ from Gossip Girl, Season 3, Episode 6, “Parentsite”

American singer songwriter Liz Phair’s ‘Hey Lou‘ was played on the soundtrack of the new Gossip Girl drama series this week — Gossip Girl, Season 3, Episode 6, “Parentsite” — an episode that aired on August 12th, 2021.

The track featuring cool guitars and punchy drums was heard playing over Gossip Girl’s opening onologue.

Liz Phair‘s ‘Hey Lou‘ is the second single from the indie rock/pop rock singer’s seventh studio album Soberish.

The album was released via Chrysalis in June of this year, and was a welcome surprise for fans as it was Phair’s first album in more than a decade.

Soberish was a moderate success for the Chicago native, charting in the United States, the UK and Scotland.

Hey Lou‘ also spawned an official music video featuring puppets of experimental musician Laurie Anderson and her husband the late Lou Reed.

The song itself explores the relationship of the iconic pair from a humorous viewpoint during a time when Reed was being an ‘asshole’, and even features a puppet cameo from Andy Warhol.

Listen to Liz Phair’s ‘Hey Lou‘ as heard on Gossip Girl this week in that music video and on Phair’s album Soberish.

Phair herself was supposed to be opening for Alanis Morissette on her 25th Anniversary Jagged Little Pill concert tour this year, but pulled out at the last minute after citing “unforeseen circumstances”.
