As long as we’re mentioning Cherie Ko’s myriad activities (see previous post), let’s hear a gorgeous cover of a Faye Wong classic!

As I recall, singing in Chinese was a rarity for her; most of her covers are American/British indie rock and shoegaze/dreampop.

Faye releases the song “Dust”, personal lyrics bare feelings

fayewongfuzao:

Heavenly queen Faye Wong is busy dating and in no hurry to make an album. Instead, at the rate of one new single per year, she has slowly fed the fans ears. Following the release of “Gentle Breeze” last year, after a year of waiting, she brings out new work again with “Dust”. With Zhang Yadong as composer and her own lyrics creating a floating and ethereal atmosphere which has always been the heavenly queen’s musical style.

In the past, Faye Wong and Zhang Yadong have collaborated many times with “Restless”, “Only Love Strangers”, “To Love”, “You’re Happy So I’m Happy”, “Chanel”, “Leave Nothing” and many other classics. He is also the best at understanding Faye Wong’s sound, his avant-garde arrangements bring out the heavenly queen’s charming and irreplaceable voice. Following their collaboration on 2014’s “One Step Away”, he is producing for her once again on “Dust”. After many years, Faye also personally wrote lyrics, revealing her inner self as dust, randomly drifting. The song is already online, the cover is a self-taken picture directly from her camera, which is quite the heavenly queen’s straightforward style.

In early June, it was revealed that Faye will hold a concert in December in Shanghai. But the ticket prices are quite astonishing. Reportedly the highest asking price 6800 yuan is the most expensive but yet to be confirmed. But what is almost confirmed is that there will be a chance to hear Faye’s golden voice. In addition, it has been 13 years without an official release of her album, but over the years there has been an accumulation of singles and movie theme songs. Many fans look forward to a compilation. But in accordance with the heavenly queen’s style, whether it will happen is difficult to determine.
