Hall and Oates have enlisted the help of Train for their new release ‘Philly Forget Me Not’. That’s in anticipation of the bands’ co-headlining tour. The song serves as a tribute to their home city and it’s their first release since ‘Do It For Love’ (2002). It’s available to listen below.
Pat Monahan, singer with Train, appears on parts of the song, while Hall sings the chorus in his unique style. Speaking about the song in reference to his home city of Philadelphia, Daryl Hall said, ‘[it] pretty much describes my feeling about Philly, my music home. It will be cool to play a new song on this upcoming tour with Train.’

Pat Monahan hailed it as a ‘life-long dream’ to collaborate with Hall and Oates, adding, ‘Train couldn’t be more excited…listening to them and playing alongside them on tour each night is going to be incredible.’
The groups will perform their joint release every night on their forthcoming tour, which kicks off May 1st in Sacramento and finishes up on August 11th in Seattle. Throughout the arena tour, each band will perform their own set and team up for a finale. Their Philadelphia show on May 26th will also also act as a revival of Hall and Oates’ HoagieNation Festival, a ‘celebration of food, music and culture.’
