CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND | Pete Muller Premieres New Song “And (Hold On)”: Exclusive

Singer-songwriter Pete Muller is gearing up for his sixth studio album, More Time, out this Friday (May 17th). In advance of the release, Consequence has an exclusive premiere of the opening track, “And (Hold On),” and its accompanying music video.

Kicking off with a grooving Rhodes piano riff, “And (Hold On)” was inspired by the “conflict between being an artist and a good husband/father,” as Muller explains to Consequence. “Instead of picking one or the other, I choose to go for both: Hold on to what you want AND hold on to what you got.”

The track was recorded in Memphis with producer/engineer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, Margo Price) and features contributions from former Wilco drummer Ken Coomer, guitarist Will Sexton, organist Rick Steff, and bassist Dave Smith.

“All of them learned the song the day we recorded it, and Will came up with an out-of-the-blue crazy guitar riff that really makes the track come alive,” Muller remembers. “My buddy Eric Donnelly added a killer guitar solo which kicks in after the bridge.”

To film the Chris Morgan-directed music video, Muller rented out a classic red 1969 Buick Skylark convertible and took more than two dozen trips on a windy mountain road above Santa Barbara with different passengers including bandmates, friends, and his daughter and her friends.

“It makes me smile every time I watch it,” Muller says. Watch the visual below.

More Time also features the duet “Run Out of Love” with Lisa Loeb. Other previous singles include the title track and “Turn Away.”
