Hold the Girl is the second studio album by Rina Sawayama, released on September 16th, 2022 under Dirty Hit and following her 2020 debut LP, SAWAYAMA. Although the record was first teased by the London-based artist in April 2021, its official announcement came more than a year later, on May 19, 2022, alongside the release of the lead single “This Hell”. A second single, “Catch Me In The Air,” was then made available on June 27.

Rina started working on Hold the Girl, together with Clarence Clarity and Paul Epworth, shortly after she had decided to embark on “intense therapy” in order to deal with an unresolved trauma from her adolescence, as revealed during an interview with Rolling Stone UK:

For me, it’s important that the listener is able to listen to it as a pop record first without that background, [and] make their own feelings about it. And then, when I’m ready, I think I will be able to talk about what it’s actually about.

With influences ranging from progressive rock, through ‘90s rave music to country music, Hold the Girl was directly inspired by the insights the artist gained during the sessions with her therapist. As she told in a press release, the album has been structured so that its thirteen tracks reflect Rina’s journey to come to terms with her past, going through the revelations and the personal growth she experienced while going through therapy:

I’ve designed the tracklist so it takes you on a journey, and by the end, you feel released by it. […] It’s a very adult record, because it’s really only fully understood when you become an adult and you can look back on experiences [you had] as a kid. It’s about escapism. It’s about looking after yourself, reparenting yourself and finding yourself.

On July 6 2022, the official track-list for the album was released through Rina’s Instagram profile.
