Philadelphia singer-songwriter and XPN favorite Amos Lee released the second single to his upcoming album, My New Moon, out August 31st via Dualtone Records. The slower, ballad-like track appears seventh out of ten tracks on the new album, and is a change of pace from the previously released “No More Darkness, No More Light.”
The new single, titled “Hang On, Hang On,” finds Lee drawing on personal experiences, rather than elsewhere on the album where Lee touches on finding strength in others – from the Parkland survivors to the relationships built through Musicians on Call. From a press release, we learned the track is set around the last night Amos spent with his grandmother. The lyrics “I would’ve stayed forever, but it didn’t work out that way” ache a little extra with this in mind.
Lee recently stopped by the XPN studios to sit down and chat with Helen Leicht to premier lead single, “No More Darkness, No More Light,” talk about influences Bonnie Raitt and John Prine, and discuss more. Listen back to that session through The Key.
