The breathy singer posted a video of herself on Instagram singing a portion of the new song a cappella last month, saying at the time:
“I’m not gonna lie, I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions with North Korea mount. I find it’s a tightrope between being vigilantly observant of everything going on in the world and also having enough space and time to appreciate God’s good earth the way it was intended to be appreciated”.
“On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favourite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song.
“I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual’s hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run”.
Unveiling the finished recording of the song yesterday, she said: “What a blessing it is to make music in general. And to have the freedom to put songs out about things that move me in real time.
“I wrote this one last month on the way back from Coachella. Thanks to my producer and engineers for turning it around so quickly”.
