Paris Georgia, Alicia Alba and Abi Phillips of the country-pop trio The Adelaides might hail from across the pond, but the British group is gaining traction in the states. On top of opening for acts Kiefer Sutherland and Mo Pitney, the group served as support for Charles Esten’s 2019 UK tour at his request. 

The Adelaides most recently debuted their new single Seven Billion, which they co-wrote with producer Femke Weidema. Kicking off the song with pristine a capella vocals, the performers sing: I’m one in 7 million/ I’m special times a million/ If you don’t like what you see/ The chance that it gets to me/ Is one in 7 billion. The track’s infectious melody captures your attention as The Adelaides weave in tight harmonies over meaningful lyrics.

“‘Seven Billion’ is about knowing who you are: the good, the bad, the truth. What makes you unique and celebrating that. There’s only one you,” the trio tells Sounds Like Nashville. “For anyone that has ever been made to question themselves because of someone else’s negative comment: our song is for you. We wrote it because, at some point in our lives, we’ve all experienced that.”

While in quarantine, the group managed to film a safely-distanced music video for Seven Billion. The clips feature a mixture of each band member singing remotely along with people holding signs of various affirmations. “Our music video was during lockdown, so it was tricky, but we found a way of expressing our point,” the group states.
