In 2019, Life.Church's Switch burst onto the Christian music scene with their first EP, Symphony (Dream Records). The title track broke Billboard records when it held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Christian Hot AC / CHR chart for 13 consecutive weeks and twice earned the highest number of spins in one week for the Billboard Christian Hot AC / CHR chart. By the year's end, "Symphony" was named the Hot CHR Chart's #1 Song of the Year, and Switch was honored as Billboard's 2019 Top New Christian Artist.
On the heels of this success, Switch is excited to announce the release of their debut full-length album, Symphony, on February 14.
"We're excited to be able to share new music from Switch, less than a year from the release of our first EP," said JT Murrell who oversees worship album production at Life.Church. "It's so humbling to be able to tell the stories of the people in our church in a way that blesses the global Church."
The group worked with Louis Biancaniello to produce four brand-new songs for the album, including the group's second radio single, "Count Me In." Like their song, "Symphony", the sounds of the new single will push the envelope.
"What we love musically about this song is that it begins with a simple vocal and a kick drum. It's not cluttered, busy, or big," said Murrell. "There's no panic in the chorus lyrics. Just a calm resolve to follow Jesus despite the odds. I'd say this song sounds how that step of faith feels."
The songs represent the future with touches of pop and EDM. Sonically, it's a progression of what the group produced with the Symphony EP, but it goes further. Fans can expect the same melodic vocals from the team, but with even more advanced material.
