Hootie & the Blowfish is getting ready to drop their first album in almost 15 years, Imperfect Circle, on November 1st and they have just given fans another taste of the upcoming release with their new song “Hold On.”
“Hold On” was co-written by Chris Stapleton and Jim Beavers, and sends a message to the world to “Hold On” through turbulent times.
Imperfect Circle is Hootie & the Blowfish’s sixth full-length studio album and the followup to 2005’s Looking for Lucky. The band’s new album showcases 13 new songs, some of which were co-written by artists including Ed Sheeran (“Wild Fire Love”), Chris Stapleton (“Hold On”), Eric Paslay (“New Year’s Day” & “Lonely on a Saturday Night) and more. Sheryl Crow also provides backing vocals on songs throughout the album.
In a statement, Rucker says of the meaning behind Imperfect Circle, “We’ve been playing together for thirty-something years and for us to be here and to be doing this tour, to be making a record, it just seems like Imperfect Circle was perfect.”
