Hall & Oates have paid tribute to hometown Philadelphia with their first new song in 12 years. ‘Philly Forget Me Not’ was co-written with Pat Monahan and features Train.
Hall & Oates last new music were three Christmas songs. 2007’s ‘Take Christmas Back’ was an iTunes bonus track for the ‘Home For Christmas’ album. John Oates also penned ‘No Child Should Ever Cry On Christmas’ and Dary Hall’s ‘Home For Christmas’ on the Hall & Oates for the album released a year earlier.
Before that the last Hall & Oates album was ‘Our Kind Of Soul’ in 2006 but that was mostly a covers album with only one new and original song.
Hall & Oates will tour the US with Train starting May 1 in Sacramento. No doubt the song will be featured in one of their setlists.
