Joseph Arthur - You Keep Hanging On

Joseph Arthur has such a classic voice. Like the kind of voice you would have heard at Woodstock. This video is just so organic. The simplicity of it and the depth of colour of that piano just makes seem so warm.

Joseph Arthur has released the video for his latest single ‘You Keep Hanging On’, taken from the forthcoming album The Family, which will be released through Real World Records on June 3rd and available on vinyl in late June.

The video was premiered on Q and perfectly captures the dreamscape moods and beautiful melodies of the new album and sees Joseph in his creative element, at the hands of his recently acquired 1912 Steinway Vertegrande piano, which he wrote the whole of The Family on - a first for Joseph who for the most part writes songs from guitar, and who single-handedly took on vocals, drums, drum programming, pianos, guitars and synths for the recording of the new album.
The album was mixed by Tchad Blake, whose previous collaborations with Joseph include the well-loved songs ‘Honey and the Moon’ and ‘In The Sun’, the latter which has been covered by Michael Stipe and Peter Gabriel.
Originally discovered by Peter Gabriel, and subsequently signed to his Real World record label in 1997, Joseph quickly established a reputation as a formidable and creative talent with his experimental folk-rock style, diverse instrumentation and eclectic electronic production elements. An accomplished painter, he’s displayed his works in galleries around the world, and his online-only Museum of Modern Arthur ( serves as a repository for his creations. He is also a prolific writer, principally of poetry but has also written a children's book.
With 20+ albums under his belt, Joseph is as known for his solo records as his collaborations with acclaimed performers including Lou Reed, Peter Gabriel, T-Bone Burnett, Dhani Harrison and Ben Harper of Fistful of Mercy and RNDM with Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament.
