Leon Bridges Shares New Single ‘Inside Friend’ Featuring John Mayer

John Mayer collaborated with Leon Bridges on the new single “Inside Friend.” The pair recorded the one-off track during an “impromptu jam session and studio hangout” held in 2019.

“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,” Bridges explained. “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.”

Leon will appear on John’s Current Mood Instagram show this Sunday, April 12. Mayer served as a special guest during Bridges’ September 2018 concert in Los Angeles.
