Leon Bridges collaborates with John Mayer on new single 'Inside Friend'

After recently teaming up with Khruangbin to release their joint EP 'Texas Sun', Leon Bridges has now collaborated with John Mayer for a warm and dreamy new release.

The new single 'Inside Friend' is accompanied by a new string of merchandise on Leon’s online store, with all proceeds going to MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund, which was set up by The Recording Academy to help the thousands of music creators and professionals whose livelihoods are being affected by the global pandemic.

Speaking about their new offering, Leon said, “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.”
