What you need to know:

We took advantage of the release of her new album and had the opportunity to talk to Faye Webster about this album, collaborations and much more.

This March 1st Faye Webster releases her fifth studio album, Underdressed at the Symphonywhich is a continuation of his style of laid-back folk that isn’t afraid to delve into the sounds of rhythm & blues, and well, We notice a hint of psychedelia that works very well.

Working with Lil’ Yachty on “Lego Ring” is wonderful where the two authors show us how two sonically distant worlds can be reconciled. They even took everything to the next level and released a game like the one we saw in the video clip (which can be seen here, by the way).

Sopitas.com: Hello Faye, thank you for taking the time to talk to us.

Faye Webster: “Clear!”

Sopitas.com: Regarding the title of the album, how did you come up with the idea, are there any anecdotes?

Faye Webster: “Um, while making the record I went to see the symphony in Atlanta a lot and it became a big thing for me. I don’t remember how I did the symphonic part of the song, but it occurred to me to remove the words and insert a sensual image there. This part was taken over by whoever plays strings and keyboards in the band, he duplicated everything and the result was a fake symphony“.
