Listen Wild Pink share ‘Hold My Hand’ with Julien Baker

The band’s fourth album, ‘ILYSM’, is out later this year.

Ahead of the release of their fourth studio album ‘ILYSM’ on 14th October on Royal Mountain Records, Wild Pink are sharing a new duet with Julien Baker called ‘Hold My Hand’.

“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 the band’s 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.”
