Songfacts®:

  • Louisa Rose Allen is an English singer and songwriter who records under the name of Foxes. She took her stage moniker from the very first song that she wrote.

    Allen explained to Coup De Main magazine: "When I was thirteen I wrote a song called 'Like Foxes Do', and it was about how the fact - I was very, very young - that Foxes only have one mate for life and I thought that was really romantic being a soppy thirteen-year-old, so I wrote a song about that! It was a very childish song, and that's kind of why I ended up calling myself Foxes."
