Rina Sawayama shares colourful video for lively new single ‘Catch Me In The Air’

UK pop star Rina Sawayama is back with a video for her new single “Catch Me In The Air.”

The track comes from her forthcoming album, Hold The Girl, out September 2nd via Dirty Hit. “Catch Me In The Air” is an uplifting tune that sees Sawayama delivering heartwarming vocal lines atop slowly building instrumentals. The accompanying video features footage of Rina Sawayama performing the track live superimposed on top of stunning, brightly coloured scenery.

“Sometimes I feel really ready for the emotional work,” Sawayama tells Apple Music’s Zane Lowe of the track. “And then other times I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m too tired. I just want to write just a stupid, silly song.’ And sometimes I do write stupid, silly songs that don’t mean anything. But I feel like I’m able to emotionally process that feeling when I write a song about it, so it feels really nice and to be able to share it, and then have that same emotional response from other people is amazing, so it’s worth doing.”

More about “Catch Me In The Air”:

“It was one of the first ever sessions that I did during lockdown in person, and so I was so anxious about catching COVID,” Sawayama adds. “Everyone was really feeling anxious about it. And then, so I think because of that, I wasn’t able to write and nothing was coming. Gracie was like, ‘Oh, my God, Gwen Stefani’s releasing a new song.’ And I was like, ‘Why don’t we just pretend to write for Gwen?’ Like, ‘Let’s just get our brains out of our heads and let’s just pretend’… But after that I was like, ‘Ooh, I’m so about pre-chorus key changes at the moment.’ So, I think it was going into the chorus or maybe even going into pre chorus. But anyway, I was like, “Oscar, come up with a key change please.” And he was racking his brains because doing a key change is really hard… and what’s harder than an obvious key change is a really subtle key change.

In addition to “Catch me In The Air,” Hold The Girl features Rina Sawyama’s previously released single, “This Hell.”
