What Are We Waiting For?
Lush. Ethereal. Dynamic. Evocative. Percussive. Stark.
This morning Luke Smallbone from For King + Country called in to Brekky to share the joy of their new album What Are We Waiting For? which releases on Friday 11th.
What Are We Waiting For? marks profound personal and professional growth for the brothers following the double GRAMMY-winning album, Burn the Ships; it reflects the state of the world and their growth as men, fathers, husbands, and especially humans.
“The musical progression for us on this album is a question and a comment for all of us. Looking at the songs – ‘Broken Halos,’ ‘Unity,’ ‘H.O.P.E,’ ‘Together’ – the greater questions are where the urgency and hope lie. To recognize imperfections, but not be drowned in shame when we do. Knowing if you ignore (flaws), you can become such ruthless judgers of everyone else.”Joel Smallbone, For King + Country
For FOR KING + COUNTRY – the quadruple GRAMMYÒ-winning progressive pop artist-songwriters – what music can do, as a positive and emotional force in people’s lives, is what drives the Sydney, Australia-born, Nashville-based duo. Fearless and searching for not just commonality, but how we all can take the things that scar us and transform them to grow in love, FOR KING + COUNTRY offers rigorous engagement with the world.
