The devil works hard, but Rina Sawayamaworks harder. Fresh off the triumph of her UK and US headline tour, the newly mintedBritish-Japanese popstar is following up her celebrated debut album SAWAYAMA withHold The Girl, a colossally ambitious and utterly original record that marries intimatestorytelling with arena-sized tunes.
