The 90s trio lend their iconic harmonies to the Harry’s house “Friends” jewelry
Wilson Phillips‘ last single was 2012’s “Good Vibrations,” which isn’t shocking considering it’s a cover of a song co-written by the fathers of two of the band members. But now, the California trio have completely branched out for their first new song in 10 years: a rendition of Harry Styles‘ “Boyfriends.”
The penultimate Harry’s house The track is a three-minute gem featuring Ben Harper’s slide guitar, with Styles’ sweet vocals woven throughout. Wilson Phillips nails it so perfectly it could be their own song, applying their signature harmonies to lines like “Love an idiot who knows just how to get under your skin.”
According Chynna PhillipsCarnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson, the band were in a hotel room last spring when they watched Styles perform the track on TV, and they immediately knew it was for them.
“We are all such huge Harry Styles fans and are honored to cover such a well written and recorded song as ‘Boyfriends,'” the band said in a statement. “We have daughters and nieces, as well as many heartbreaks, loves and boyfriends in our own history, so the lyrics and the harmony spoke to us on many levels. We are so proud to share our version of his already beautiful song with the world today.
Even if the last album of the group dates from 2012 Dedicated, they’ve toured over the years, most recently last month at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. In 2020, they celebrated the 30th anniversary of their hit “Hold.”
