The second single from the forthcoming album "Your Best Friend Is The Night" (released on 2 October 2020).

"One of the first songs that I wrote in Berlin was ‘True Friends Are Rare’. I still have a note on my mobile with the line ‘Your best friend is the night’, which just popped into my head while on the Berlin tram. The song gave me the confidence and self-esteem to continue writing songs at the piano. Without that song this album might never have happened."
