Following the release of their previous single Painted Legacy and announcement of the upcoming EP, the country pop duo have released the stripped back Hold Space. The track looks at the importance of holding space for those closest to us.
Speaking about the track, Catherine Ward-Thomas explained, “Hold Space is a song that we felt like we needed to write, we live in a world of advice and “shoulds” and sometimes we just need to be there to walk beside our loved ones while they find their own way. It is a song for anyone going through a tough time, and a lesson we will keep learning when going through our own struggles.”
The track is the second to be taken from The Space Between, which was written and recorded in London, Hampshire and Nashville. The EP, explains Lizzy Ward Thomas, “is all about togetherness. Holding space for someone, reaching out to help, or just being present and there with someone through a difficult time.”
Ward Thomas are set to head out on their Unfiltered acoustic tour in September 2020. Ward Thomas had originally announced the acoustic show at Manchester’s RNCM would take place in April 2020, but were forced to reschedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
