Watch Suki Waterhouse Perform “Faded” (Live at Coachella)

This past weekend, musician and actress Suki Waterhouse made her Coachella debut, headlining the Gobi Stage to a massive crowd of adoring fans. She premiered new songs live, delivered a spot-on Oasis cover, and even gave an adorable gender reveal on stage. You can now watch a live performance of “Faded,” her new song released last week worldwide on Sub Pop.
Of her Coachella set, Billboard said, “…She was embedded in one of the more luxurious sets the Gobi tent has likely ever seen (the aesthetic could perhaps best be described as “English teatime in the park”). In addition to performing fan-favorite tracks like “Johanna” and “Nostalgia” as well as newer songs like “Faded” and “OMG,” the singer-songwriter surprised the crowd by debuting a pitch-perfect cover of Oasis‘ “Don’t Look Back in Anger” so solid even the Brothers Gallagher themselves may have approved.”
Suki Waterhouse will perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, again closing out the Gobi Stage on Friday, April 19th.
Suki Waterhouse’s “Faded” was released with the ebullient “My Fun” late last week. Teen Vogue called the songs “vibey, summery, and chilled.” Rolling Stone said “‘My Fun’ is a laidback spring stunner, while ‘Faded’ is a mellow rocker backed by acoustic and strings. It features one hell of an opening from Waterhouse.” Meanwhile, PASTE included “My Fun” in its “Best New Songs” column, saying, “Beached out and carefree, Suki’s feel-good lyrics gleam through the bubblegum-sweet production.”
“My Fun” was composed by Suki Waterhouse, Natalie Findlay, and Jules Apollinaire, with lyrics by Waterhouse and Findlay, and produced by Apollinaire. “Faded” was composed by Waterhouse, Raj Jain, and Peter Labberton, with lyrics by Waterhouse and Jain, and produced by Jain, Labberton, Eli Hirsch, and apob. Both songs were mixed by Blue May and mastered by Matt Colton at Metropolis Studios. “My Fun” and “Faded” will be on her forthcoming album, due out later this year.
Later this summer, she’ll appear at Seattle’s Day In Day Out on Saturday, July 13th.
Suki Waterhouse has been working nonstop as a musician since the 2022 release of her Sub Pop debut, I Can’t Let Go. She followed the album with the standalone single and official video for “Nostalgia” and the Milk Teeth EP (featuring the Gold-certified single “Good Looking,” which went viral on TikTok and peaked at #1 on Spotify’s Viral USA Chart). In 2023, Suki released the single and official video for “To Love,” the song “Everyday’s A Lesson in Humility,” a summery collaboration with Belle and Sebastian, and in August, joined Local Natives on a reimagining of their single, “NYE.”
Last year, Suki played to some of the largest crowds of her career in South America (Lollapalooza in Argentina, Brazil, and Chile), the US (Governor’s Ball, Ohana, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits Festivals), and Mexico (at Corona Capital). Suki also starred as Karen Sirko in “Daisy Jones & The Six,” the Emmy-nominated Amazon Prime Video limited series based on the popular book by Taylor Jenkins Reid.
