Wild Pink have shared a new single ‘Hold My Hand’, featuring Julien Baker

It’s the second preview of forthcoming album ‘ILYSM’, set to land this October.

Wild Pink have shared a new single, ‘Hold My Hand’.

The track – a second preview of forthcoming album ‘ILYSM’ – sees the band team up with Julien Baker.

“I wrote that song right after my first surgery, about lying on the operating table where a member of the surgical team held my hand right before I went under,” says lead vocalist John Ross. “It sounds kind of arbitrary, and like it shouldn’t have been as impactful as it was, but I felt very comforted and wanted to capture that loving feeling in the song.”

“I knew pretty quickly that I wanted it to be a duet, and I’m super grateful to Julien for joining me on it. This was one of the first songs we rehearsed together as a band in the studio and David’s piano part felt great almost immediately. There were a couple moments like that in the recording process where a song just immediately fell into place as soon as we started playing it.”

You can check out ‘Hold My Hand’ below. ‘ILYSM’ is set for release on 14th October.
