Jessy Lanza has shared a video for her playful new track “Face,” along with the revelation that her upcoming LP, All The Time, will be released on July 24th.
Lanza says that she became inspired to write this track by analyzing people’s facial expressions on public transit.
“I was fantasizing about what everyone was thinking based on their expressions. I found myself projecting my own feelings onto the strangers I was looking at. I went home and wrote the lyrics imagining that the commuters were having telepathic conversations with each other. The questions I imagined them asking each other oscillated from sexual to confrontational: ‘Baby is it just enough? Tell me do you want it all? Baby are you feeling tough? Feeling tougher more than not?’”
“Face” is the perfect counterpart to Lanza’s previous single, “Lick in Heaven,” which is more of a lullaby compared to the fun, bubbly new single.
Hey! I’m Allen Steinberg and I’m currently based in Belleville, Ontario. I’m a Journalism & Communications student doing my four-week placement with Canadian Beats because I love writing and I love music. Outlets like Canadian Beats are important because they care about showing off smaller / newer artists who may otherwise not get much exposure. I think it really keeps them going. I also sing and play guitar in my band Arm’s Length. Happy to be here!
