Track of the Week

Weekends by Freya Ridings


Freya Ridings became a huge breakout star in 2018 when her single ‘Lost Without You’ climbed into the UK top 10 and achieved over a million chart sales in the the process. Ridings returns with her first new music in almost three years with the single ‘Weekends’.

I don't really have friends

Don't go out on weekends

I don't have a lover left to hold…

I’m so f***ing lonely, no one really knows me

You are still a heart I want to hold.

“There was a breakup when I got given my first platinum disc for ‘Lost Without You’”, Ridings says. “I had no one to call and I was sat alone in a bar in King’s Cross. I'd chosen to put the energy into my career, and you miss so many birthdays, people just stop inviting you because they don't think you're around. It looks as though I had thousands of people around me, but actually I was the most alone I’ve ever been. So that song felt like me being scarily honest with myself, which was hard.”
