Give Me Your Hand (Best Song Ever)

Album: The Bad & The Better (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Jordan Witzigreuter, aka The Ready Set, finished this song in January 2012 but it didn't get released until May 18, 2012. He told The Alternative Press: "We've had about 20 mixes of the song that have gone back and forth between me and my friend Andrew Goldstein who produced it with me, plus my management and label and everything."
  • Witzigreuter has said that he went into the studio not intending to make a dance song, but ended up doing so anyway. He commented: "I think we're finally happy with the outcome and I'm excited about it. We started playing it on the last tour with Breathe Carolina and it was probably the most fun, energetic song I've done in that setting. It's a blast live."
