Premiering earlier today at Aquarium Drunkard, the new Dan Huiting directed video for Bill Fay’s “Be At Peace With Yourself” takes the viewer on a wonderful journey through some spectacular landscapes. It fully encompasses the song’s message and offers a soothing visual to one of the stand-out tracks from Fay’s forthcoming album, Life Is People. The new album is out August 21.
“The video was shot all over the world. The opening shots and many of the cloud/water/mountain shots are from the east coast of Australia, shot by Dylan Wiehahn. Much of the aerial shots were shot in the American Northwest by Tabb Firchau, And the rest of the road and aerial shots were shot by myself in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New York.” -Dan Huiting
The long wait for new music from English singer-songwriter Bill Fay is finally over! Today, NPR’s All Songs Considered premieres Bill Fay’s new single, “Never Ending Happening” off his forthcoming album, Life Is People, out on August 21. On their Summer Music Preview, Bob Boilen and Robin Hilton feature some of summer’s most anticipated releases. Alongside Bill Fay are songs from Cat Power, Grizzly Bear, Avett Brothers, and Jeff the Brotherhood. Listen to the show HERE.
In addition to the All Songs Considered inclusion, Robin Hilton continues the Fay coverage in Old Music Tuesday: Bill Fay’s ‘Be Not So Fearful.’ Hilton writes, “The title of his new record says a lot about Fay’s work. His songs are often existential, full of a quiet awe and wonder. He’s a plainspoken lyricist who seeks to make sense of an often baffling world, finding eternal truths — love, compassion, humility — on both a cosmic and personal scale. It’s so good to hear him back in fine form.” Head over to the All Songs Considered Blog to read the post.
