The track is the first song from his upcoming EP to be released in the spring of 2021 and delivers hope for change in anthemic guitar-led pop song.
Regarding the video Andreas says,“I had so much fun making this video and I'm so happy I got to do it with my close friend Christoffer Paavilainen holding the camera. We didn't have more than one room, one camera and a couple sources of light to work with so we decided that the focus should be on the performance and expression as opposed to a story or concept. Since I'm not the best dancer I'd say that the most challenging bit for me filming this was to actually 'move' to the music - But I think I got it right in the end and I'm so happy how it all turned out.”
About the song he continues,“‘Holding On’ is a song that’s slowly been writing itself over several year.I’ve had the chorus recorded on my phone for over three years. To not only be able to complete it, but also finally release it as a single is such a satisfying feeling, as from all my previously released songs, this is the one I’m most proud of.”
With the song's message of breaking free and letting go, Andreas wants to convey a sense of hope to the listener.“For me, 'Holding On' is a very hopeful song about trying to break free from the things we know are not good for us – ‘That one of these days I will burn every page and tell a story that is only mine.’”Andreas explains.
The new song follows the single ‘POWER’, which was released in the autumn of 2019 and is Andreas’ interpretation of the Kanye West hit.
