Leon Bridges has shared a new track, “Inside Friend”, which features John Mayer.
As Bridges noted in a tweet introducing the track, “The current state we’re in globally compelled John Mayer and me to dig this back up and finish it. I hope y’all find it soothing and uplifting while we hole up indoors and get through this [sun] with rays.”
Mayer also posted a clip of him and his dog singing along to the track:

The song itself unsurprisingly smooth as silk, considering the two emotive artists behind it. The 808-assisted, dreamlike tune features lead vocals from both and collaborative vocals on the chorus as well as dripping vamps and watery riffs from Mayer’s guitar.

This is far from the first high-profile collaboration with which Leon Bridges has been involved this year. In February, Bridges and Khruangbin released a collaborative EP, Texas Sun.
