Gotee Records' HOLLYN will be releasing her new 6-song EP, bye, sad girl., on September 6. However, Hollyn has been criticised when critics question whether or not she is still a Christian artist. This is because Hollyn's songs from her new EP do not explicity mention God or the Bible.
On social media, Hollyn responds: "It breaks my heart to read these comments because it's a complete misinterpretation of this project, me, and the heart of God."
For Hollyn one doesn't need to mention God in every song because God is in every aspect of life. Rather, these new songs were created to bring healing. "my response to these statements and ones like these would be... isn't God in every aspect of our life? He is a God of process & God of hope."
"If you, your friends, or family, struggle with mental health, emotional health, or trauma... I pray this project meets you right where you're at. whatever your situation is. "
