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.”
The Official video features a cameo appearance from Foxes as a tattoo artist and was written and directed by Joshua Triggand stars Zara Gabiddon and Natasha Trigg as two friends on a Thelma and Louise style road trip, with scenes of pure joy and freedom – the world at their fingertips – interlaced with poignant reality of tougher times in the shadow of even the best of times, and the grief of losing a friend.
Foxes’ new single serves as the follow-up to “Woman,” a bold statement of empowerment and reclamation of control as a woman, with a universal message of standing up to the unacceptable, with a powerful ability to be interpreted uniquely to each and every woman who listens. The song is paired with a powerful new animated video directed by Gemma Green-Hope.
Talking about her new single, Foxes says: “There’s a lot of injustices in the world right now and I hope this single can be interpreted by any woman, in any situation, facing injustice, facing any situation that they know is wrong, and helps to stand up and say no to what isn’t right.”
Foxes was at the forefront of pop with her critically acclaimed debut album Glorious, and a GRAMMY Award-winning collaboration with EDM giant Zedd for ‘Clarity.’ In 2017, Foxes decided to press pause and focus on connecting with herself. During that time, she’s been working on writing and recording and is now ready to return to the musical arena with “Friends In The Corner,” “Woman” and “Love Not Loving You” before it, marking her foray back into the limelight.
Foxes released her comeback banger “Love Not Loving You”, The power to press play again after pressing pause and the beacon of strength, independence and empowerment she felt when reconnecting with herself while taking a break from music. Watch the Rauri Cantelo-directed, filmed DIY style at home during the quarantine.
The New Single “Friends In The Corner” by Foxes is her third single since returning from a game changing three year hiatus.
