Musical chemistry was in the air when Brandy Clark and Dwight Yoakam teamed up at the 2015 Grammys to sing “Hold My Hand,” a song from Brandy’s 2013 album, 12 Stories. In fact, there was so much musical chemistry between Brandy and Dwight that the tandem decided to record a studio version of tune and release it today (Oct. 28).
“Dwight added something so special to ‘Hold My Hand’ both at the GRAMMY performance and then on the track itself,” said Brandy. “We had both forgotten about it until we had a show together. In catching up backstage one night we came up with the idea to put it out—for no other reason than we both loved it so much and thought it was a shame to just be ‘sitting on a shelf.’ Music is made to be heard and we definitely wanted this version to be shared.”
Check out the new version of “Hold My Hand” below.
