After scoring a Grammy earlier this year for their smash hit "Say Something," A Great Big World has returned with a touching new single, "Hold Each Other."  The song is attracting attention because the lyrics acknowledge both hetero and homosexual relationships, but A Great Big World's Ian Axel says that's not the only reason they chose it for the first release from their new album.
