SBTRKT will release his new single “Hold On” digitally on February 21st, and as a limited edition 12” in a deluxe lenticular sleeve on May 8th. It comes backed by the instrumental ”Rise to Freedom”, along with a remix of “Hold On” attributed to Sisi BakBak, who (through powers of Sherlock-like deduction) is probably Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

According to KEXP’s Cheryl Waters, who premiered the track, the remixer is soon playing Seattle’s Key Arena (that’s where Radiohead is playing in April.) Also, as Pitchfork points out, BBC’s Rob da Bank tweeted (via P4k): “listening to the thom yorke mix of @SBTRKT for the 18th time…unbeatable!”” So there you go. Watch the Sam Pilling-directed video for the remix below.

Pre-orders for the “Hold On” 12″ are now ongoing via XL’s webstore.

As previously reported, SBTRKT has another another single in the works: His top song “Wildfire” will be released on 12″ vinyl on March 6th. Pre-orders for that one are still ongoing here.
