Faye Webster has released "Suite: Jonny" from her forthcoming Car Therapy Sessions EP.

After announcing her Car Therapy Sessions EP with new single "Car Therapy" earlier this month, Webster has delivered a second outing from the EP titled "Suite: Jonny", which combines her Atlanta Millionaires Club songs "Jonny" and "Jonny (Reprise)".

Webster says of the release, "This is the song that sparked the whole concept for this project for me. It’s also one of the first songs that I ever wrote that I felt was truly honesty and had true transparency, which I think is maybe why so many people relate to it. I wanted to be able to relive this song in a way that felt new at the same time, which is why I really like the direction that Trey took these orchestral arrangements."

Car Therapy Sessions is an EP made up of new, and reimagined orchestral versions of songs from her I Know I'm Funny haha and Atlanta Millionaires Club albums.

Webster said of the EP earlier this month, "I have a vivid memory of walking around London in 2018 listening to a mix of "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 favourites but also thinking about how different they would sound with an orchestra," Webster continued. "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."

Webster added, "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."

"Suite: Jonny" is out now. Faye Webster's Car Therapy Sessions EP will arrive digitally via Secretly Canadian on 29 April. The vinyl edition is set to be released on 28 October, and is available to pre-order now.
