Joseph Arthur – You Keep Hanging On (2016)

‘You Keep Hanging On’ is the first single from the forthcoming new album by Joseph Arthur, ‘The Family’, released on 3 June 2016.

The album is released on True North Records in the USA & Canada and Real World Records for the rest of the world.

Multi-instrumentalist that he is, Joseph single-handedly takes on vocals, drums, drum programming, pianos, guitars and synths for ‘The Family.’ A first for Joseph, who for the most part writes songs from guitar, the whole album was written at the piano – a Steinway Vertegrande from 1912, that he’d recently acquired. This aged instrument ‘so full of character and history, and owned by just one family until it ended up in Joseph’s industrial studio space in Red Hook, Brooklyn’ was a potent source of inspiration. It also features in the video.
