Today, Grammy Award winning R&B artist and songwriter Leon Bridges releases “Inside Friend” featuring John Mayer. The special one off track, which is not tied to an album or part of a larger project, was recorded during an impromptu jam session and studio hangout last year. Listen to the song here.
Leon Bridges says, “The concept for “Inside Friend” came about from Mayer and I joking around in the studio about what an ideal date for an introvert or homebody like myself would be. I tour most of the year, so I’d rather invite a gal over to lounge comfortably in the crib as opposed to go out somewhere crowded. “Inside Friend” stayed on the back burner for a while because it didn’t fit within the context of my third project, but the current state we’re in globally compelled us to dig this back up and finish it. I hope people find it soothing and uplifting while we hole up indoors and get through this.”
“Inside Friend” is one of many recent releases from Leon, following on the heels of Texas Sun, a collaborative EP with Khruangbin, as well as his feature on Noah Cyrus’s “July”.
