U.K. singer has big solo plans after guesting on Zedd, Fall Out Boy tracks.
Top 40 fans would likely recognize the voice of Louisa Rose Allen, better known as Foxes, as the guest on Zedd's hit single "Clarity." Or, if you're a Fall Out Boy diehard, Foxes is the artist alongside frontman Patrick Stump on "Just One Yesterday," from the reunited group's recent No. 1 album "Save Rock and Roll." And if you're across the pond, you might recognize her as the guest vocalist on Rudimental's track "Right Here," from their debut album "Home," which was released last month in the U.K.
It's been a whirlwind year of flashy guest collaborations for Foxes, but the 22-year-old London native tells Billboard that she's ready to move on from drive-by appearances and present a more substantial body of work. After all, it was her achingly georgeous solo song, "Youth," that gained her enough attention to score those guest spots in the first place.
"I don't want to be that 'featured' artist," says Foxes, "because I also have my music that's my baby, and at the end of the day, that's the most important thing to me." The singer-songwriter plans to release her debut album this fall, and first up is the new track "Beauty Queen," which will receive a digital release next Monday (May 13).
