After marrying in 1995, she worked infrequently on some new songs and finally issued 'whitechocolatespaceegg' in 1998. Her 2003 self-titled album boasts a more pop oriented sound, with tracks such as 'Why Can't I?' and 'Extraordinary' garnering wide radio airplay. In 2005 Phair released 'Somebody's Miracle,' and in 2008 she celebrates the 15th anniversary of 'Exile in Guyville' with an expanded reissue with bonus tracks.
