Amos Lee Unveils Soulful And Cathartic Meditation On Loss "Hang On, Hang On"

New Album 'My New Moon' Out August 31 Via Dualtone Records

“This was the hardest song for me to sing on the album,” says Amos Lee of “Hang On, Hang On” – the cathartic and soulful ballad at the center of his upcoming ‘My New Moon’ (August 31 / Dualtone Records). While the record is largely focused on Amos finding strength in the courage of others – from relationships he built through Musicians on Call and the Wounded Warrior Project to inspiration he took from the Parkland survivors -“Hang On, Hang On” sees Lee use these experiences to work through profound loss in his own life. Written after Amos lost his grandmother, the song is set around the last night they spent together: “I would've stayed forever,” he sings, “but it didn’t work out that way.” 

Listen to “Hang On, Hang On”.

Already deemed "the most personal and deeply felt of Lee's seven studio albums” by Billboard, ‘My New Moon’ is a collection centered on hope, optimism and perseverance in the face of hardship. Throughout the record’s ten songs, Amos shares personal experiences that completely altered his perspective on life; from “Little Light,” the story of a nine-year-old fan he grew close with as she beat cancer, to “Whiskey On Ice,” dedicated to a couple as they come to terms with unimaginable loss. Despite the heavy subject matter, it's a record aimed to uplift, heal and send a message of hope to the most resilient. 

Helping bring Amos’ purposeful vision to life on ‘My New Moon’ are producer Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird) and an incomparable group of studio aces: multi-instrumentalist Blake Mills, Benmont Tench and Patrick Warren on keyboards, Greg Leisz on pedal steel, Rob Moose on strings and many others. On “Hang On, Hang On” it is Ethan Gruska and Jaron Olevsky who team up to create incredible sweeping melodies on keyboard and synthesizer behind Lee’s wistful acoustic. 

Amos will tour the U.S. through the fall, including a completely sold-out Colorado run this July/August and newly announced California dates in early October.
