British pop chanteuse Jess Glynne encourages fans to practise the art of forgiveness this week, with the release of her latest single ‘Friend Of Mine’.
Co-written by Jess, along with with Jin Jin, British DJ Sub Focus (who also produced the track), and Ollie Green (Rita Ora), the drum ‘n’ bass-inspired anthem sees the ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ singer build upon the unique, quintessential British pop sound that first made her a star – it’s soaring melody and self-reflective lyric reminiscent in style to 2015’s ‘Hold My Hand’.
Commenting on the single – which serves as the follow up to recent releases ‘What Do You Do?’ and ‘Silly Me’ – Glynne says: “This song is about honesty and forgiveness. All friendships and relationships have their ups and downs, life isn’t perfect. Hopefully people can hear their own stories in the lyrics and it brings them hope. I wrote ‘Friend Of Mine’ with one of my closest friends and collaborators, Jin Jin. We have worked together so much over the years but this was a real moment for us. It was my first time working with Sub Focus and Ollie Green, and it felt really special walking into a room with such open, safe souls.”
