    Rina Sawayama has shared the title track from her upcoming sophomore album, Hold the Girl. It follows the previously released singles ‘This Hell’ and ‘Catch Me in the Air’. Check it out below, along with the singer’s upcoming tour dates.

    The new single premiered on Clara Amfo’s BBC Radio 1 show Future Sounds. Discussing the song, Sawayama said: “‘Hold the Girl’ was the first song I wrote for the record at the end of 2020. I had gone to therapy and had a revelation, so I decided to write this song… that was the start of [the writing process for the album]. I was crying before going into the studio to write about it.”

    Hold the Girl arrives September 16 via Dirty Hit.
