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.
