Faye Webster announces orchestral EP <I>Car Therapy Sessions</i> Eat Humans

Faye Webster has announced Car Therapy Sessions, an EP of new and reworked material featuring a 24-piece orchestra. Webster has shared the title track with a video detailing the recording process for the project, which will be available digitally from April 29 via Secretly Canadian with a physical release to follow in the fall.


The EP comprises orchestral takes on songs from Webster's 2021 album I Know I’m Funny, Haha and 2019’s Atlanta Millionaires Club. Trey Pollard arranged and conducted the orchestra with Drew Vandenburg producing. Webster spoke in depth about I Know I’m Funny, Haha on The FADER Interview podcast last year.

In a statement Webster said: "I have a vivid memory of walking around London in 2018 listening to a mix of [Atlanta Millionaires Club song] "Jonny," which I had just written. I remember thinking "I want to perform this song with an orchestra". I truly have had my heart set on it since then, always talking about it and figuring out how or when to make it happen."

“I chose these songs mostly for them being some of my favorites but also thinking about how different they would sound with an orchestra. 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. 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 with Haim in May with a run of headline dates scheduled for August. See below for her upcoming shows and the Car Therapy Sessions tracklist:
