Glasgow-born singer Alex McEwan released his new track Hold Your Hands Out to Me in March, a song which uses niche techniques to capture fond memories of childhood in Scotland.
‘Hold Your Hands Out to Me’ was written entirely by McEwan, and was produced with fellow musician, Graham Noon. It is also one of the first songs McEwan has released after a hiatus spanning over a decade.
When asked about the inspiration behind the song, McEwan said: “Fond memories of growing up in Scotland were particularly triggered during the lockdown, when I hadn’t been home for a couple of years. So it was just natural to try to evoke that image of Glasgow and the West Coast.”
