Download New Album: Frenship – Vacation
Frenship comes through with a brand new smashing hot and dope studio album, packed with 13 amazing and solid tracks entitled “Vacation“. When you’ve got a hit, everyone thinks your life is champagne and roses. Frenship struck gold in 2016 with “Capsize,” a summer-sunset jam that features Emily Warren, and has garnered more than 498 million streams on Spotify.
It’s a lovely song, and it certainly speaks to the duo’s lush and golden style, but behind all that success was a tireless struggle. While the release made Columbia Records millions of dollars, Frenship had to haggle with the label for enough money to post Facebook ads. It was quickly becoming what Frenship’s James Sunderland calls “a toxic relationship” — so they did the unthinkable. They left a well-known major to join the indie Counter Records.
“Columbia just made it very obvious to us that that wasn’t a relationship that we should carry on,” Frenship’s Brett Hite says, “but I think the emphasis should be on how positive this current relationship is. I don’t know if its because we’re like wounded dogs with new owners, but they are just so awesome. Counter welcomed Frenship and all their ideas, giving the pair an environment within which to flourish. Vacation is the result, a 13-track exploration of honest emotion and lyrical melodies. There are playful homages to the music they love most, and raw examinations of love and life’s most complicated highs and lows.
They’ve been through a lot, but they keep their sunny disposition, teasing each other like brothers throughout a conversation with Billboard Dance wherein they shared the true stories behind each and every track. This is the kind of song(s) you wouldn’t want to miss on your playlist.
