Today, Foxes shares Friends In The Corner - her next single since returning from a game changing three year hiatus. Out today via [PIAS] Recordings.

Sonically, Friends In The Corner is the euphoric peak of the night out. Footloose, free and far from reality. 3AM. The instantaneous embrace upon recognising its your song. Shouting the lyrics and proclaiming your undying love for each other. Cloud nine. Happy tears. Sad tears. Uber 8 minutes away.

The reality lies in the lyrics. An anthemic melancholic banger, both irresistibly danceable and cryable as it narrates the fragility and hidden nature of mental health, and the vulnerability and internal battles you realise you, your friends, your family, and likely even the strangers you pass by, are going through.

Discussing the new single, Foxes (Louisa Rose Allen) says: ³it 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 I¹d never seen before. It might have been the age we were at, but everyone¹s 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 shouldn¹t take each other for granted and weve really got to look out for our friends. Its 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 shouldn¹t be any stigma around this anymore. We¹re all in it together.²

The accompanying video features a cameo appearance from Foxes as a tattoo artist, and was written and directed by Joshua Trigg and starrs Zara Gabiddon and Natasha Trigg as two friends on a Thelma and Louise style roadtrip, 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.

The single follows on from the empowering IG track Woman with its universal message of standing up to the unacceptable, to be interpreted uniquely to each and every woman who listens, and the bold, buoyant comeback banger Love Not Loving You that transported you to the light at the end of her time away, the power to press play again, and the strength she felt when reconnecting with herself while taking a break from music.
