Guy Blakeslee, aka frontman of The Entrance band, has shared his latest solo single “Faces.” Taken from his upcoming record Postcards From The Edge, which will be out on February 5th, “Faces” is a visceral track that has an undeniable sense of longing for someone. The track arrives with a video directed by Lael Neale (whose vocals are also featured in the track along with Hale May and Rachel Fannan) that gives you cinematic vibes of Harry Smith combined with David Bowie. Check it out:

“‘Faces’ was written in Paris during a rainy spell as the Autumn was turning to Winter,” noted Blakeslee. “Everyday, I would stalk the crowded streets in a bubble of isolation, not speaking the language or knowing a soul, stopping into a cathedral on my way to an empty apartment at the top of six long flights of stairs. From there I would write, or stare through the skylight while listening to the eerie silence and the Notre Dame bells ringing over the slow moving Seine. Years later it was recorded in New Orleans, where I found myself in another self-imposed isolation state.”

He added, “Producer Enrique Tena Padilla unlocked my ideas for the recording in unexpected ways. With a magician’s command of the studio’s midnight haze, he closed his eyes and watched the movie of the story I was trying to tell and then brought the soundtrack to life. His abundant gifts as a producer really shine through in this song.”
