The Hold Steady – Family Farm

The Hold Steady’s most classic tracks are driving rock songs with piano breaks. Just like the best work of artists such as Bruce Springsteen and Bob Seger. The band’s new single Family Farm has all of the characteristics of such a classic. It’s a stomping rocker of the rousing kind, with horns as an added bonus. Up-tempo, dynamic, and with a chorus full of shout-along potential. No doubt, this will be fun to play (and hear) live.

Family Farm is the first single off The Hold Steady’s next album Open Door Policy, out on 19 February 2021. It was written and almost entirely recorded before the pandemic started. Yet the songs explore power, wealth, mental health, technology, capitalism, consumerism, and survival; issues which have compounded in 2020.
