Citizens return with their new single "Everything And More." The song is taken from their new Integrity Music album, which is due for release later this year. The song speaks about how God is greater than our wishes, thoughts, and frustrations.
Deeper than deep
Brighter than bright
More than our words could ever do to describe
Truer than true
Purer than pure you're everything and still you are more
Everything and more
Lead singer Zach Bolen reveals that "Everything And More" came to him as he sat at the piano, "when I think back on it," he says, "this song was a springboard for discovery." From this moment, every song came from living in a space of revelation and admission that perhaps God was bigger than one could possibly know.
Citizens introducing their upcoming project with this song is no coincidence, "Everything And More" is only the tip of the iceberg of Zach's journey of unlearning and reimagining the scope in which he, and in turn we, view God. Sonically, the new single expands on this concept with a soundtrack full of surprises. From starting on a sound bed of compressed piano and fresh beats, "Everything And More" grows into an expansive track where layers of 80s synths, dreamy strings and echoing voices of Zach's kids yelling in the background collide into a song oozing with fun and creativity.
Writing songs with honesty and artistry - songs that tell true stories of their journeys - is the heartbeat of Zach, Brian, Connor, Adam and Daniel, who collectively make up the band Citizens. The Seattle-born band has an abundance of talent as musicians and writers, crafting beautiful and engaging songs full of musical creativity and substance. Citizens' desire has always been that their songs would be approachable and accessible, creating space for people to connect to the music and each other, wherever they're at.
