Grammy Award®-winning New York pop pair A Great Big World debut the music video for their latest single “Hold Each Other” featuring Futuristic on VEVO.

Helmed by iconic director Marc Klasfeld [Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jay-Z, Katy Perry], the clip depicts band members Ian Axel and Chad King strolling through the city. They deliver their respective verses in black-and-white until splashes of brilliant color match the song’s vibrant melodies and inspiring message. The single heralds the release of their highly anticipated second full-length album, Won’t Stop Running [Black Magnetic/Epic Records]—available in stores and at all digital retailers on November 13.

“Hold Each Other” continues a tradition of thoughtful and unshakable anthems from A Great Big World that began with 2013’s “Say Something” (with Christina Aguilera). Their introduction eventually went quadruple-platinum, reached #1 around the world, and achieved a Grammy Award in the category of “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.”

This album almost makes me wish morning would never come so that I could play this album all night! Even still, the upbeat melodies, and positive lyricism make it the perfect start to your day. The messages of love are abundant, and the standout single “Hold Each Other” is incredibly progressive for pop culture, music, and today’s society. The album’s title track (and seriously, the whole damn album) makes me long for early summer again when the air was still cool, and camping in the woods wouldn’t have been such a bad road trip. Simply put, the album is medicinal and speaks to the gentleness in your soul, especially when listening to “Where Does The Time Go?” Let this album play with your lover at 4:30 AM when the sun is just peeking over the horizon. I promise you won’t regret it.

With this track, Axel and King explain,”We are hoping that we can inspire people (even just a little) to fearlessly speak their truth when it comes to who they are and who they love.”

Just in time for the album release, A Great Big World reveal the details for two album release shows. They’ll play the Troubadour in Los Angeles November 6 followed by a hometown gig November 18 at Gramercy Theater in New York. Tickets will be on-sale starting September 18. See their official site for all purchase info.
