Jesse McCartney drops catchy new track 'Friends' soon after Turtle stint on 'Masked Singer'
The breezy, infectious new pop song was written as a tribute to his friends by Jesse McCartney, Scott Effman and Riley Biederer, and was produced by Twice as Nice
The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Jesse McCartney has just released a fun new track for the summer, called 'Friends'. The breezy, infectious new pop song was written by McCartney, Scott Effman, Riley Biederer and was produced by Twice as Nice. The recently unmasked singer (Jesse McCartney was the Turtle on 'The Masked Singer') had previously released the single 'Yours' last month, which dropped on April 10. Both tracks are slated to appear on McCartney's upcoming album later this year, which will be his followup offering to 2014's 'In Technicolor'.
As the lyrics "Thank God I've got my friends" suggest, the song is a tribute to the chosen family who get you through all the highs and lows in your life, whether it's hanging out with them on rooftops at 3 am, drinking in bars or chilling on the beach. A music video for the track is also scheduled to drop in the next few weeks, but it will be shot remotely, in accordance with the ongoing coronavirus restrictions. In the meantime, you can check out the lyric video below for the new bop below:
"When I wrote the song I had no idea we would be facing a worldwide pandemic, but now it seems like it’s making people nostalgic," the 33-year-old McCartney revealed. "When I'm looking at the reactions online, people are like, 'Oh my God, I can't wait to go out to a bar or go to the beach with my friends!' It's making people miss their friends, so it's actually a perfect time."
McCartney also said the peppy new song was a perfect antidote for people stuck at home during this quarantine period, considering it's all about declaring love for your friends, instead of a significant other. "You rarely in pop hear songs about hanging out with your best friends," he revealed. "You hear about romantic relationships and heartbreak and love, but this seemed like a fun twist about being romantic about your friends and how much you need them in your life."
The multi-platinum-selling singer also added, “I think ‘Friends’ comes at a time when we all realize what’s most important. With the future looking uncertain, it’s nice to have friends to lean on for moral support. I know I speak for everyone when I say we’re all looking forward to getting back to our routines and seeing our loved ones face-to-face again!” You can get more details about Jesse McCartney's upcoming ventures on his official site.
