One of our favorite independent artists, Hannah Ellis never lets us down with her music. She released her deeply personal track “Your Woman,” a few months ago, and today, she’s back with a fresh sound in her new song “Friends Like These.” Fans, who have attended her live shows might recognize it as she often closes out her sets with the jam.
Ellis’ new song is an anthemic track dedicated to her friends. She sings about only having “nights like this with friends like these” referring to memorable moments with true friends. She reminisces about carefree nights with her people. The song is a breath of fresh air, focusing on the intricacies of relationships between friends rather than lovers or exes. It’s completely relatable, catchy, and upbeat, and is sure to garner her more fans and much deserved attention.
“Yeah we’re all about the weekday with the weekend vibes / it’s just our style / and never have a plan / but that don’t mean that we can’t / keep looking for an excuse to celebrate every little thing / like a birthday / or three weeks straight / yeah y’all bring out the side of me / I can’t help but wanna be / the life of the party.”
Catch Ellis in the opening spot on tour with Gavin DeGraw on August 6th at The Paramount in Huntington, New York. We caught the Swag Sessions alum, last year when she performed at our first ever Babes, Booze, and Brunch event and earlier this year alongside fellow CMT Next Women of Country songstresses Cassadee Pope and Clare Dunn at the Gramercy Theatre.
