Just Friends is the new single from Louise Parker and it comes hot on the heels of her two biggest singles to date. Only ‘The Chicks’ stopped Louise from hitting the top of the charts with Lie To Me, which quickly followed an upbeat collaboration with Joey Clarkson, which hit the top 5 of the UK iTunes Country Chart.
Of the song, Parker notes that it plays to her ‘cheeky side’. It tells the story of 2am text messages and the realisation that you’ve let someone go far too soon – and that you don’t want to be ‘just friends’. Immediately, this is a different side of Parker. Her previous two releases have shown both her playful side and her raw, emotional side. Now, she’s sharing her country diva side. This is flirty, fun and all country – from the twang in the vocal to the interplay between piano and strings. Parker’s passion for her music is evident throughout – you don’t have to listen too hard to hear her smile as she sings. Parker recorded the song after much persuasion from her devoted fanbase, having been performing it live across the world since 2018.
