Sweet Baboo is to release new single ‘Got To Hang On To You’ on August 14th via Moshi Moshi Records along with new album The Boombox Ballads

Stephen Black (aka Sweet baboo) says of the song: “That was my attempt to write a song like The Boys Are Back In Town by Thin Lizzy”, even though the song’s lyrics, “All I want to do is play you Northern Soul records, while you’re lying next to me until late in the night”, suggest a different inspiration.

‘Got To Hang On To You’ follows recent single ‘Sometimes’. Watch the video here.
