July 11, 2013 – Calling it “aching and intriguing,” CMT Edge premiered “How Long,” a song from Charlie Faye’s new album You Were Fine You Weren’t Even Lonely, out August 6th. It’s been a big week for Faye. In addition to the CMT Edge premiere, she was the #1 most added artist at Americana radio this week, and she’ll tape a Daytrotter session today as well. Faye also recently swung by her hometown NPR-affiliate station, KUT in Austin, to debut four songs from the new album live.

The majority of You Were Fine, You Weren’t Even Lonely, which American Songwriter says “does find a way to make heartbreak beautiful,” was recorded at the home studio of Jay Bellerose and Jen Condos in Los Angeles. The relaxed atmosphere provided time for home cooked meals instead of an eye on how much studio time was left. This resulted in some of the most emotionally honest songs of Faye’s career. Bellerose and Condos’ suggestion that they record everything live gives the songs an organic, lived-in feel. And the ace band assembled around Faye – Bellerose on drums, Condos on bass, Mike Thompson on keys, Sexton and Greg Leisz on guitar – buoys the songs and lends the album cohesiveness.
The Fleetwood Mac-by-way-of-Stax sound of the album provides a backbone for the emotionally raw songs. Lyrically the new album explores the inner-workings of relationships, specifically the fissures that were forming in Faye’s at the time. She was on the tail end of a long relationship with her writing partner Will Sexton as they were creating the album. Many of the songs proved eye-opening, unwittingly foreshadowing a split that had yet to occur.
