Faye Webster announced Tuesday that her fourth studio album is on its way. Following 2019’s <<a href=”https://www.pastemagazine.com/music/faye-webster/faye-webster-made-the-album-youll-be-swaying-to-al/”>i>Atlanta Millionaires Club, I Know I’m Funny haha will arrive June 25 on Secretly Canadian. The album announcement is accompanied by the release of the record’s first single, “Cheers,” and dates for a U.S. tour this fall.
“Cheers” is a stellar taste of what’s to come on Webster’s forthcoming record, with her dynamic vocals receiving an added punch via driving guitar and a rhythmic amp fuzz sample. The song comes with a music video directed by Matt Swinsky, in which Webster rolls with SIG and the Real Bike Life Only riders of Atlanta’s dirt bike scene.
Webster said of the song and video in a statement:
This song has always felt like a standout from the record to me. It was the kind of song where you’re like “oh yeah, this is the one.” Right after the first take. It felt different to me and it made it feel like I was entering a new era and chapter for myself. It’s kind of the outlier on the record but at the same time is still so original and identifying to myself. Also it just makes me feel like a badass for once.
I’ve known SIG and the bike life guys for many years now. If cameras were not present these guys are still riding for their own enjoyment. People love what they do and yet there are still many people who are so quick to judge and label them in a hateful way. Everyone of them that I’ve met has been kind, welcoming and hospitable to us so that inspires me to continue documenting them the best I can.
Webster’s tour in support of the album kicks off in Columbus, Ohio, at the start of September. She’ll be hitting notable spots like New York’s Music Hall of Williamsburg and Nashville’s Mercy Lounge before concluding back in her hometown of Atlanta.
