GRAMMY® Award-winning artist and songwriter Brandon Lake latest full-length album, HELP!, is available now. HELP! features the voices of JUDAH, Chandler Moore, Amanda Cook, and his sons Blaise and Beau, this album is infused with the healing honey of raw honesty and authenticity-while serving as a resounding "me too" in response to anyone who is wrestling with thoughts that are not from God.
Lake shares, "I pray these songs give you something to scream to when you're feeling crazy, sit to when you long for His whisper, and sing to when you're feeling grateful for His never failing rescue. I have found that `HELP!' is a hard word to say, but powerful to pray.
"And I pray you receive exactly that, just as I have. I have so many people to thank and very little room in a comment to do so. I will be doing my thanking in my stories. Talk to me in the comments and let me know how it's ministering to you! I believe there's a song for everyone in all of our different seasons of life. `I lift my eyes, up to the skies, where does my HELP come from?!'"
Juxtaposing roars of declaration with songs that invite the heart into intimate worship, one of the messages carried out by this album is that perspective is everything. Whatever the devil meant for bad can be redeemed by the Lord for good. At a time when mental health is at an all-time low, Lake's desire is to remind others that they're not alone in their battles. There's freedom and power behind the word, "help."
"In my lifetime, I've never experienced more opportunity to cave under the weight of anxiety and depression," reflects Lake. "I believe it's important that we are real, honest, and raw about the mental battles we face-that we bring them into the light so God can remind us of who He is and who we are. I believe we need honest songs, but we also need warfare songs to come against those attacks that try and keep us from being everything God wants us to be and from living truly free. Freedom has been purchased, but we need reminders that it is our inheritance and the reality we can live in daily through Him who set us free."
On the single, "HELP!," Lake says, "this is the truest and realist song of this past season for me. I pray that so many people who don't even know who God is would hear this song and it would encourage them to cry out for help."
