To weeks of having published in digital platforms, the soloist, soul Leon Bridges has published the video of Inside Friendthe song , which he recorded together with the exquisite guitarist John Mayer.
“In compliance with the requirements of social distancing, as well as recognizing the theme of the song and the time in which we all live, the video was shot on iPhones in the respective homes and no equipment of every artist”, reveals a statement from Sony Music.
“The video presents no style or art direction is elegant, but is filled with suits of sweat, sofas, a cup of noodles, canine companions, sessions of grill in the yard, and hair cuts are adults, in other words, a familiar picture of our new normal collective”, he adds.
In turn, Leon adds: “it was Just something to look at on the inside”.
The track, which is not linked to an album or part of a larger project, was recorded during a casual jam session and a session of study in the past year.
“The concept of Inside Friend emerged from Mayer and I joking in the studio about what would be an appointment ideal for an introvert, or home as I,” explained Bridges.
Then finished off: “I do tours most of the year, so I prefer to invite a girl to relax comfortably at home instead of going out to some crowded place. Inside Friend stayed in the background for a while because it did not fit in the context of my third project, but the current state in which we are globally forced us to dig up this and finish it. I hope that people will find it relaxing and stimulating while we hide inside and we overcome this.”
Inside Friend it is one of the many recent releases from Leon. In the line of time, it happens to Texas Sun, an EP in collaboration with Khruangbin, and his collaboration with Noah Cyrus in July.
