Today’s Track of the Day comes to us from Sydney based super-producer Hayden James. It may be Fall in Australia but here in LA Spring is in the air and James encourages us all to shoot our shot and ditch the friend zone on his latest track “Just Friends” featuring Boy Matthews. James delivers his first single since his smash hit “Numb” and goes from strength to strength with his latest effort. “Just Friends” is a stylistic return to the sultry mid-tempo house grooves that initially brought James to international popularity with tracks like “Something About You” and “Just a Lover.” The track lives up to the hype of James’ young but lauded discography and delivers a vibrant and sexy single perfectly tuned to the summer festival and pool party season.
James enlists the vocal talents of Boy Matthews who shines on the record with a stellar vocal performance in which he tells the story of two friends who have found themselves in bed with each other and must come to grips with the consequences. The lyrics and vocals set a perfect tone to compliment James’ seductive and groovy production while expanding upon the signature sound that his fans have come to love.
“Just Friends” is available now from Future Classic on all digital platforms, so add it on your favorite streaming service and be sure to catch Hayden James on tour at a club or festival near you.
