RINA SAWAYAMA releases her second album ‘Hold The Girl’ on 2nd September, the follow-up to her acclaimed 2020 debut.

Following the release of the brilliant ‘This Hell’, she has now shared a new preview single called ‘Catch Me In The Air’.

Inspired by her relationship with her mother, it finds her digging deep to unleash some of her most personal lyrics to date – exploring the mutually supportive relationship children have with their single parents.

She shares: “I really wanted to write about this weird relationship with single parents – you do catch each other in the air…”

Rina says: “‘Catch Me In The Air’ was written in between lockdowns with Oscar Scheller and Gracey. I wanted the whole song to sound like it was on an Irish coastline, like a Corrs video. We put in a key change to go into the chorus, at the end of the pre-chorus to make it lift and soar like a bird.”

“I then worked on it more with Clarence before taking it to Stuart Price. This was the first song that Stuart and I worked on together, and it was the most incredible experience. I’m such a huge fan of his work with Madonna and Kylie so it was a dream come true. We would send each other stock images of coastlines, people doing yoga on a pier, meditating in the middle of a field, hay bales, etc. to get inspired sonically.”
