- Hillsong Young & Free release two new singles 'World Outside Your Window' & 'As I Am' from their upcoming album.
Hillsong Young & Free have dropped two new singles “World Outside Your Window” and “As I Am” from their forthcoming album.
Written by Aodhan King, Joshua Grimmett & Ben Tan, “World Outside Your Window” resembles the band’s past upbeat tracks. The song is to inspire the listener to step out and shine because it’s not the time to stay silent.
“As I Am” was written by Melodie Wagner-Mäkinen, Mitchel Fatkin, and King with Wagner-Mäkinen taking the vocal lead. “As I Am” is a slower worship song with the message of acceptance and knowing God loves us regardless of who we are and what we’ve done.
“[As I Am] which has been a labour of love and patience over the last few years. Good things take time, and God things are perfectly timed so it’s release today during this global upheaving we’re experiencing is truly more than I could’ve imagined. I’m praying that both these songs would charge you up with truth and remind you that your voice is needed by the world around you.. and when the world lets you down run right back to Jesus who never will,” shared Wagner-Mäkinen on social media.
“We knew these were important songs to us… but never could have known how lyrics like these would bear so much relevance this year. From living within our windows to singing about equality. This is the power of writing prophetically and I am so proud of our people,” shared band member and pastor Laura Toggs.
The songs, along with their last releases “Best Friend,” “Never Have I Ever,” and “Lord Send Revival,” were recorded in January at Hillsong Church’s annual youth camp. There is no release date for the new album as of yet.
“World Outside Your Window” and “As I Am” are now available on music streaming platforms. Live and studio are also available.
