"Hold On" is the new single by KT Tunstall, off her forthcoming album Drastic Fantastic. You can hear it on her MySpace site.

It's good, but not great. There is a lot of buildup but not much payoff.

Tunstall's debut album, Eye to the Telescope, went platinum in the U.S. and multi-platinum in the U.K. I interviewed her in January or February of last year, when she was still relatively unknown in the States. When she talked about writing music, this one quote really stuck out:

"The good stuff sticks. My theory is, if I have to write something down to remember it, then it's probably not good enough."
