Today, Faye Webster has released her first new single in 2 years. “But Not Kiss” towers as a modern love song, steeped in the in-between feelings where romantic longing crashes into ambivalence, with an explosive piano hook the song oscillates between Webster’s near-whispered intimacies and a stunning, maximal arrangement. “I think it could be a really romantic song or a really anti-romantic song,” explains Webster. “It’s something I’ve looked for but struggled to find in other love songs, for them to describe this conflict or contradiction.” Along with the new single, Webster has released a companion music video directed by Kyle Ng of Brain Dead and filmed at Los Angeles’ famed Bob Baker Marionette Theatre.


To celebrate the video release Webster has collaborated with Brain Dead on a limited edition t-shirt that will be available exclusively at a launch event at Brain Dead Studios in Los Angeles, CA tonight that will include a live performance, a ping pong tournament, a screening of the “But Not Kiss” video and a Q&A moderated by Kevin Hayes. Additionally, Webster has announced an intimate one-night-only celebration at the 40 Watt Club in Athens, GA on June 22nd.

Lastly, Faye Webster also announced a major North American headlining fall tour. The dates kick off on October 17th at 930 Club in Washington DC and wrap up in her hometown of Atlanta a month later at the Eastern. Highlights include Brooklyn Steel on October 24th, The Vic Theatre in Chicago on October 29th and The Novo in Los Angeles on November 8th.
