Faye Webster – “I Know I’m Funny haha”

A few weeks ago, Faye Webster announced her new album, I Know I’m Funny haha with the lead single “Cheers.” Today, she’s back with the album’s title track, a twangy swirl of guitar that unfolds with a series of wry observations that suggest she is indeed funny, haha. Such as: “Got you a bass last year on your birthday/ The same one the guy from Linkin Park plays/ But you look better with it anyway.”

“These are the thoughts that go through my head when writing a song – things that people might easily overlook and don’t think are worthy or pretty enough to be sung,” Webster explained in a statement. She continued:

I think that’s what people relate to it the most, and I think it’s an aspect of song-writing that you don’t get to hear often. This song feels all over the place but at the same time it tells a story so simple and understandable. Me not getting my security deposit back from my landlord, my partner’s family forgetting who I am because they were drunk, wanting to be in a rock band with Booth…. it almost sounds like a mad lib at first sight, but it just works.
