for KING & COUNTRY’s Luke penned the lyrics and sang the melodies for the first time on a dreary and seemingly hopeless day. “Every single one of us craves this thing called hope,” said Luke. “I’ve seen the incredible take place when people have it saturated in their lives. But without it we all become lifeless ourselves. So if we had one encouragement for you today it would be to seek after hope with everything in you!”
While for KING & COUNTRY have been busy crisscrossing the states and playing in front of the thousands of fans this summer at festivals and fairs, the song has taken on a new significance and increasing importance for the band.
Luke, who comprises half of the duo, has been suffering from an ongoing illness and has taken time off from the road to recover. “This song has taken on a whole new meaning to us both as a result of Luke’s illness,” adds for KING & COUNTRY’s Joel. “That said, if you have a mate who is walking through a tough time, gift them this song.”
