Foxes a.k.a Louisa Rose Allen shares her new melancholic anthem, ‘Friends in the Corner‘. Additionally, the said track is the third single she released since returning from a game-changing three-year hiatus. It narrates the fragility and hidden nature of mental health, and the vulnerability we should embrace as we get older.
“It was a weekend away with a close group of friends andI considered them to be strong and together, but for some reason at that time they all showed a vulnerable side I’dnever seen before. It might have been the age we were at, but everyone’s hidden struggles came to the forefront andit made me realise the older we get sometimes the morefragile 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 weall suffer from mental health issues on some level and at different times inour lives. There really shouldn’t be anystigma around this anymore. We’re all in it together.”- Foxes

Moreover, this song was recorded in Eels’ local Los Feliz, California recording studio.

“I was basically lying in the dirt half the time. We went with the flow. A lot of the focus was on getting nourishment from our meals. We cooked directly on the woodstove, and we went on walks to the creek every day to bathe. I’m grateful that this music has come into existence. These songs have helped me heal. I hope that at least in some small way this music can be a friend to you.”- Adrriane
