Magnet - Hold On - Video Stream - Free Download!
The mysterious Magnet, Even Johansen - another resident of the Norwegian hit-factory town of Bergen, Norway returns a new single ‘Hold On’ on August 15 th on Atlantic Records, taken from his forthcoming album ‘The Tourniquet’, his second UK full length album which follows on August 22 nd, the follow up to the massively acclaimed debut ‘On Your Side’. The single comes backed with a series of special new tracks on a collectable 7” series.
Whilst plaudits, pundits, music lovers and human beings in general found solace and comfort in the trademark Magnet melancholica of ‘On Your Side’, ‘The Tourniquet’ is not so much a record soaked in optimism, but one reborn in it. Its first single ‘Hold On’ opens the album with searing anthemic invigoration…“I’m not on my own, you are not alone, it’s just hard sometimes,” croons the Magnet, re-inviting you on a warm and aspirational journey just like The Beach Boys, Nilsson, The Beatles and other classic artists did so well. “For me, it’s like a soul ballad, with a Beach Boys outro, and it means? Well I think it means what all good soul ballads mean – there are good times a comin’!” he says of the track.
As a little taster you can now download one of the tracks from the forthcoming album 'Duracellia' completely free. Simply click here for the track and to find out more on Magnet.
Magnet will return to the UK with a special series of live dates later this summer.
