Mental health is such an important aspect of our lives, and electro-pop group A R I Z O N A unanimously agrees. The New Jersey natives have even announced that they’ll be donating $1 from every ticket sold on their ongoing Ones To Watch-presented ‘The Find Someone Tour’ to Hope For The Day, which is a non-profit organization that focuses on suicide prevention and mental health awareness. Being massive fans of the late Avicii, A R I Z O N A reached out to the Swedish DJ years ago about collaborating on a meaningful cut that unexpectedly became a stand-out track on Avicii’s posthumous full-length album, TIM.
The talented members of A R I Z O N A have always been extremely vocal about their struggles with mental health, having dealt with anxiety and depression on an everyday basis. Before his tragic passing, Avicii resonated with “Hold The Line” because of its vulnerable lyricism that speaks volumes so he took it upon himself to produce the uplifting track. With crushing electronics and thrilling production, “Hold The Line” is exactly what we would’ve wanted from an Avicii x A R I Z O N A collaboration.
On “Hold The Line,” A R I Z O N A shared,
“As producers ourselves, we have all been fans of Avicii’s work for years, and we were hoping to work together at some point. On top of that, we’ve all struggled with anxiety and depression throughout our daily lives, and have been vocal about mental health awareness. We didn’t learn until after Avicii’s passing that this song had made its way into Tim’s hands and really resonated with him. We felt honored to have the opportunity to take it the last few steps to the finish line. This song means a lot to us, and we hope it will carry a positive message to anyone out there who is struggling with the hardships of daily life. You’re not alone.”
