Aloe Blacc has shared another new single from his upcoming new album – listen to ‘Hold On Tight’ below.
It’s the third track to be lifted from his forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘All Love Everything’, which is due to arrive October 2.
Complete with thumping percussion and choral backing vocals, ‘Hold On Tight’ is an inspirational offering that hears Blacc reflect on some tough times while finding the strength to persevere.
“Rather than a genre, my music is about A.I.M.: affirmation, inspiration, and motivation,” Blacc said of the track. “After so many opportunities to talk about my music and not feel comfortable saying, ‘I’m a pop artist’ or ‘I’m a folk artist,’ I had this realisation. My songwriting genre is thematic.”

Blacc was one of a host of artists including Rihanna, Billie Eilish, Lizzo and Justin Bieber to sign a major open letter to US Congress calling for police reform.
It was birthed as a part of a campaign to shift funding from police and incarceration in Los Angeles County toward other public services following the recent Black Lives Matter demonstration sparked by the death of George Floyd.
