"Hold On", which is teamed with a Melody Maker-directed video, marks Nicholl's first outing of 2021, following his 2020 EP Omertá, and is produced by Felix Joseph (Mahalia, Jorja Smith, PA Salieu, GoldLink).

He says of the track, ""Hold on" is about not managing expectations in spite of fair warning, the point of transition in a problematic relationship from being all in and desperately trying to make it work into resentment, anger and apathy. It was written in two halves at the beginning and end of this transition with the first verse predicting the course of events and the second verse looking back with that clarity that comes from cutting ties."

Rhett Nicholl's "Hold On" single is out now via Since 93 (RCA Records).
