Watch Rina Sawayama releases video for ‘Hold The Girl’
It’s the title track of her forthcoming new album.
With her new album ‘Hold The Girl’ set for release on 16th September via Dirty Hit, Rina Sawayama is releasing the video for the title track.
Directed by Ali Kurr, the video acts as a “metaphor for Rina’s emotional breakthrough in therapy” which inspired her to write the song.
“’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 it,” Rina explains. “I was crying before going into the studio to write about it.”
Check out the video below.
