Hootie & The Blowfish are releasing the first single off their upcoming album, Imperfect Circle, due out on November 1st. The song is called "Hold On," and it was co-written by Chris Stapleton and is the only song the group did not write on the entire project.

Group member Jim “Soni” Sonefeld tells us about finding "Hold On." ["‘Hold On’ came very late in our recording sessions, but I don’t think there was a song that summed up more of a vibe of our band going back to the early ’90s of sort of lifting each other up and looking out for one another and a spirit of sort of helping each other as a way of therapy and just a way of rebuilding your heart.”] SOUNDCUE (:23 OC: . . . rebuilding your heart.)

Imperfect Circle is Hootie & The Blowfish's first studio album since 2005's Looking For Lucky.
