Hear Meghan Linsey’s Lively New Song ‘Exes and Friends’
Meghan Linsey continues her quest to bring sassy Motown swing to country with her brand new single, “Exes and Friends,” released on Tuesday.
Co-written by the former Steel Magnolia duo partner/Voice runner-up with Julie Moriva and Tyler Cain, the track places Linsey’s edgy-but-delicate vocals over a foundation made of stomp claps and dancing keys, creating a kind of Eighties pop-meets-doo-wop feel that would sound right at home next to Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass.” Listen to it below.
“Exes and Friends” is a lighter take on the slithering barroom R&B found on Linsey’s 2015 six-song EP Believer, with a chorus that goes “Somewhere between exes and friends/ That’s where we are, that’s where we are / Somewhere between happy endings / And broken hearts, and broken hearts.” It calls to mind Linsey’s relationship former boyfriend and Steel Magnolia partner Joshua Scott Jones, with whom she endured a public split.
Linsey recently launched a funding campaign through Patreon to help with the cost of recording a new EP. Though no release date has been announced, she plans to put it out in 2017. She also has a series of dates ahead with fellow former Voice competitor Sarah Potenza, including a November 28th show at Nashville’s City Winery.
