“Letting Go” available ahead of March 11 album
On Friday, Switch dropped their new single, “Letting Go,” ahead of the release of their next album, “Better View, Part II,” which will be released on March 11. The second part of their “Better View” project follows the fall 2021 EP release of “Better View, Part I” (Sony Music/Provident’s Essential Worship).
The band’s team said, “‘Letting Go’ guides the listener through a raw conversation with God, starting with tough questions and leading to the realization that God is loving and trustworthy. As l one of the most venerable songs from the upcoming album, its chorus sings, “Even with these questions, I open my hands/Come and destroy my plans/While I wait, I’ll love, I believe you’re in control / Come and make me whole, I’m letting go.” Listen to the song here or see the lyrics video.
The songs found on the upcoming release of “Better View, Part II” bring Top 40 sound with 90s influence, bridging the gap between pop music and Christian lyrics. As with “Better View, Part I”, the release and theme of “Part II” comes from the band’s hope that by listening to the songs, people will get a better view of God and how much he loves them.
“We wrote this album for anyone struggling with questions, but especially for students and young adults who are part of our church,” the Switch members shared. “They are the first generation growing up being exposed to unfiltered difficulties across the world and the comparison of social media as part of everyday life. We wrote these songs to help them overcome these difficulties with a perspective of faith.”
