Alex Cameron – Far From Born Again
Today, Faye Webster shares the video for her new track “Flowers,” co-directed by Webster and Kevin Hayes. The collaboration with Father premiered today on Beats 1 and is the latest single from her forthcoming full length, Atlanta Millionaires Club, out May 24th via Secretly Canadian. “Flowers” serves as an homage to Father and Awful Records, the Atlanta rap collective who helped start her career.
According to Webster: “During My Time on Awful I learned a lot about making music with other members. It was refreshing because you don’t think about it and it’s always a spontaneous thing to be in the same room as someone and start working on a song without over thinking. This song is one of those.”
Atlanta Millionaires Club is a genre-bending collection of songs, bringing together Webster’s feather-light vocals, intimate songwriting, and her acumen for being strikingly vulnerable and brave. Pulling from a familial lineage of folk storytelling and time spent in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene, Webster’s work is a study of duality, weaving through her own introversion and heartbreak; it’s an idiosyncratic sadness punctuated by fleeting observations and an unexpected, sly sense of humor. “Everything is way personal. I’ve never been that kind of person who can read a book and then write a song about the book,” Webster says. “I have to write about very personal things for me to even want to write.”
Faye Webster has announced a US headlining tour for June following her appearance at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. She has been supporting Stella Donnelly on her US tour and will embark on dates with Lord Huron later this month before shows in the UK. All updated tour dates below.

Today Alex Cameron releases his third album, 'Miami Memory.' As with 2017’s 'Forced Witness,' Cameron’s flair for narrative and character are on full display, yet for the first time, 'Miami Memory'’s most frequent narrator is himself. 'Miami Memory' is Cameron’s love letter to his partner; a vulnerable, tender, and at times lustful, dedication to the one he loves.
Following “Far From Born Again, “Divorce,” and “Miami Memory,” Cameron now presents the album opener and final pre-release single, “Stepdad.” Cameron has become a major presence in his girlfriend’s children’s lives, and “Stepdad” is an ode to the oft-mocked peripheral parental role.
Whitney, the Chicago-based band led by vocalist/drummer Julien Ehrlich and guitarist Max Kakacek, today release their sophomore album, Forever Turned Around. On the follow up to their much-beloved debut, 2016’s Light Upon the Lake, Ehrlich and Kakacek grapple with the anxiety and acceptance that time is limited and navigate questions of mortality, doubt, love, and friendship.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has proclaimed August 30th to be Whitney Day in Chicago to celebrate the release of the band’s sophomore album, 'Forever Turned Around,' out that day. Throughout August 30th, fans will have a chance to celebrate with the band around the city.
