Faye Webster Releases Video For “A Dream With A Baseball Player” & Expands Tour

Today, Faye Webster releases a video for her new single “A Dream With A Baseball Player,” from her anticipated new album,out this Friday, on Secretly Canadian. The song is a snapshot of Webster’s one-time teenage crush on Atlanta Braves outfielder Ronald Acuña Jr., who she met when she was invited to sing at a Braves game in 2019. The music video was directed by Swinsky.

A song about Ronald Acuna Jr, obviously. Off tour I spent so much of my time watching baseball that I thought I wanted to be a baseball player. But I’m not, so I guess the next best thing was having a crush on one,” says Webster. “I guess this song explains what having a crush feels like. Having made up conversations with them in your head even though you don’t speak their language, wearing their team jersey every day, things that make you feel closer to this person that you don’t know at all. But I sang at the Braves game, and they let us meet so I think I got that one out of my system.

Faye Webster has also expanded her upcoming headlining tour in support of the album. Tickets are available now at fayewebster.com. All dates below.
