With their highly-anticipated new album landing next month, Baba Ali have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Hold My Head' comes accompanied by a stunning new video, directed by Dan Tombs, and follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Burn Me Out' in previewing their sophomore LP 'Laugh Like A Bomb', which is out on the 28th April via Memphis Industries.
Speaking about the new offering, they said, “I just kept singing it until I could really feel the depth of the words, and my eyes started to Water. We stopped the session there and I knew something had finally stuck. I realised that it was this intense emotional place in myself that I needed to tap into as we continued writing the album.
"The moments of feeling worn out on tour ended up being a real inspiration for the song. The opening line ‘sew me up’, in fact, came from a time when my trousers kept coming apart at the seams when performing. I would have to keep repairing them in the hotel after each show night after night after night. These repetitive actions of stitching, sewing, tearing.... really seeped into me.”
