Faye Webster has a new EP on the way. Titled Car Therapy Sessions, the EP is set to be released on April 29 via Secretly Canadian. The collection is comprised of new and re-imagined songs performed with a full 24 piece orchestra. To accompany the EP announcement, Webster is sharing the title track “Car Therapy” and its music video directed by Sean Valdivieso.
On the EP, there are three reimagined orchestral arrangements of songs from Webster’s 2021 release I Know I’m Funny, Haha and 2019’s Atlanta Millionaires Club. The tracks “Kind Of,” “Sometimes” and “Cheers” will undergo a lush and whimsical transformation.
The accompanying music video for “Car Therapy” features an inside look into the recording process with the full orchestra and Webster.
“I chose these songs mostly for them being some of my favorites but also thinking about how different they would sound with an orchestra,” Webster said in a statement. “Especially ‘Cheers,’ I feel like that’s the one song people wouldn’t think I would choose but that’s exactly why I did. Trey also made all the arrangements so that they start off playing songs of mine that I didn’t end up choosing, which I thought was brilliant.
“The recording experience was beautiful, I was truly fighting tears,” Webster continued. “I think I had actually even cried listening to the demos. I was put in a position where I could see the conductor as well as the producer, which I needed because I honestly couldn’t pick up on my cues sometimes even though I wrote the songs. I was so distracted in how beautiful the orchestra sounded I would forget to sing sometimes.”
Webster will be on tour this summer, accompanying Haim for several tour dates and also playing solo shows of her own.
