FRENSHIP Releases New Song “Songs for The Weekend”
- Los Angeles-based alt-pop duo FRENSHIP, consisting of James Sunderland and Brett Hite, released a new song “Songs for The Weekend” on October 21, 2022.
The song is the follow-up to “Cry (let it out)”, which was written by back in August.
It was written by James Sunderland and Brett Hite.
The duo said of the song, “Songs for The Weekend came about last winter at Brett’s lake house in Idaho. He was backing up his car and it has this great backup tone/sound, kind of like a high pitched hum. I became a little obsessed with it so we recorded it on my phone and threw it into the session and the song was born. You can hear this sound at the beginning of the song and throughout the choruses.”
They continued, “Unlike a lot of our songs, this one was written by just the two of us in Brett’s cabin overlooking the lake at sunset. It came from a moment of pure enjoyment—we just had fun with it and didn’t overthink much. The main line, “we just write songs for the weekend” actually started out as us joking about writing songs for the artist, The Weeknd. It developed from there into a song about how we don’t matter, in a good way. Sometimes we take ourselves too seriously and can forget we just make music. This song is an ode to how beautifully non-essential we are. It matters what we do, but it doesn’t, really. And that’s freeing and kind of amazing to us.”
