The Hold Steady unveil new single 'Heavy Covenant'

With their highly-anticipated new album set to drop next month, The Hold Steady have now unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Heavy Covenant' follows on from the previously shared lead track 'Family Farm' in previewing their new LP 'Open Door Policy', which arrives on the 19th February via Positive Jams/Thirty Tigers.

Speaking about the new release, frontman Craig Finn said, "'Heavy Covenant' is a song about travel, technology, and human connection. The song came out of two different music pieces that THS [The Hold Steady] piano/keyboardist Franz Nicolay brought in, and with the help of producer Josh Kaufman, we combined them. It came together quickly, and when our friends Stuart and Jordan came in and added the horns to the chorus it really seemed to bring it together. To us, this song is a great indication of where the band’s sound is at in 2021."
