After releasing her debut EP Libelle earlier this year and co-producing and directing her video for “Not Today” last month, Annabel Jones drops a new single, “Stay,” premiering exclusively with V. The British singer, who describes her sound as fun, snarky and sometimes dark, says, “'Stay’ is basically about being in the friend zone and accepting your fate. In the old days, it was called ‘unrequited love’,” a feeling some of us can relate to.

The track is in collaboration with producer Nebbra, giving it the electronic edge reminiscent of Kygo and Parson James's "Stole The Show" and Calvin Harris and Rihanna's "This Is What You Came For." “We worked well together and I liked everything [he] brought to the table,” said the singer. “My songs are all very personal, so it can be weird when you don't know someone to make yourself that vulnerable. It's cool because it's broken down some of the walls I created around myself and it's made me way more open to collaboration.”

What's next for the singer? Supposedly another EP out next year. But until we have a date, our fingers stay crossed.

Listen to her new track “Stay” below.
