Dear Nora, the musical project of Katy Davidson (they/them), has shared “Hold It Down,” a bonus track from the upcoming limited edition triple LP box set reissue of their long out of print career-spanning compilation Three States: Rarities 1997-2007. Originally released by Magic Marker as a double CD in 2008, Orindal Records is releasing the collection on vinyl for the first time. The box set features 60 tracks, including three bonus tracks, and an 8-page, full color booklet filled with liner notes and archival photos.
Of “Hold It Down,” Davidson says “I wrote ‘Hold It Down’ back in 2012 when I was on tour in Europe as a session keyboardist with the band Gossip. It was the beginning of the tour, so I had terrible jet lag. I stayed up all night in a Bordeaux hotel room, overlooking a beautiful plaza, thinking about time, distance, and family. I was contemplating the millions of realities that happen concurrently, and how those realities weave in and out of feeling connected and disconnected. “
Three States: Rarities 1997-2007 is available for pre-order now and due September 18th via Orindal Records.
