Baba Ali release new single ‘Hold My Head’

It’s the latest preview of new album ‘Laugh Like A Bomb’.

Ahead of the release of their new album ‘Laugh Like A Bomb’ on 28th April via Memphis Industries, Baba Ali are sharing their latest single ‘Hold My Head’. “I just kept singing it until I could really feel the depth of the words, and my eyes started to Water.” notes Baba. “We stopped the session there and I knew something had finally stuck. I realised that it was this intense emotional place in myself that I needed to tap into as we continued writing the album. “The moments of feeling worn out on tour ended up being a real inspiration for the song. The opening line ‘sew me up’, in fact, came from a time when my trousers kept coming apart at the seams when performing. I would have to keep repairing them in the hotel after each show night after night after night. These repetitive actions of stitching, sewing, tearing…. really seeped into me.” Check out ‘Hold My Head’. ‘Laugh Like A Bomb’ Tracklisting: 01. Hold My Head 02. Burn Me Out 03. Gold Rush! 04.
