Foxes - 'Friends in The Corner'
UK singer-songwriter returns with her melancholic dancefloor release 'Friends in The Corner'.
Her third single, since returning from a life-changing three-year hiatus jumps into the hidden nature of mental health and the vulnerability everyone goes through. 'Friends in The Corner' is irresistibly danceable yet emotionally charged through charismatic melodies and upbeat vocals.
Speaking about the new song, Foxes reveals: “It was a weekend away with a close group of friends and I considered them to be strong and together but, for some reason at that time they all showed a vulnerable side I’d never seen before. It might have been the age we were at but, everyone’s hidden struggles came to the forefront and it made me realise the older we get sometimes the more fragile we become. It really hit home that we shouldn’t take each other for granted and we’ve really got to look out for our friends. It's becoming more and more apparent that we all suffer from mental health issues on some level and at different times in our lives. There really shouldn’t be any stigma around this anymore. We’re all in it together.”
Alongside the single, Foxes released a video which she features a cameo appearance as a tattoo artist. Directed and written by Joshua Trigg and featuring stars Zara Gabiddon and Natasha Trigg as two friends on a road trip; with scenes of joy interlaced with the reality of tougher times even at the best of times and the grief of losing a friend.
Since her comeback track 'Love Not Loving You' - a bold, resilient single that was astonishingly catchy, followed by 'Woman' which became a bold statement of empowerment with a universal message of standing up to the unacceptable; Foxes is back at the forefront of pop. With her third single out of 2020, we can’t wait what she brings next.
