Rina Sawayama has taken to her socials to announce that her next single is dropping this week.
‘Hold The Girl’ will arrive on Wednesday, and serves as the title track from her upcoming album, slated for release on 2nd September.
It follows other previews from the record, ‘This Hell’ and ‘Catch Me In The Air’.
Speaking about the track, Rina explained: “This was the first song I wrote for my new record, and I knew immediately it would be the title track. I had a really emotional therapy session that morning before studio where I was encourage to “hold the inner child”. I wrote ‘Hold The Girl’ in my notes app on the way to the studio. The song is about honouring your inner child. It’s about giving yourself the love that you didn’t have as a youth.”
Rina will embark on a UK and Ireland tour in October, including a show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton.
The dates are:
12 Glasgow, Scotland – SWG3
13 Glasgow, Scotland – SWG3
15 Dublin, Republic of Ireland – Olympia Theatre
18 Nottingham, England – Rock City
20 Manchester, England – Manchester Academy
