Acoustic III From Young & Free Is Here And It's Beautiful

We've been loving the songs from III since it came out last year - Every Little Thing, Let Go, Love Won't Let Me Down, Just Jesus - we  could go on all day?? Now Studio Sessions is here and features live, in-studio stripped back acoustic tracks and stunning video renditions of powerful, original worship anthems. Count us obsessed! 


Hollyn: Horizon

Hollyn's new song has been added to the playlist and it's "more than music". Hollyn says,

"...it's a part of my story that reveals the tension between my heart and my mind... I want to encourage people going through a terrible drought season in their heart and their soul that you know what looks like darkness could actually be a place of planting and that God is stirring something inside of you to make you stronger and not that He causes the pain but He allows you to see the beauty in the pain and to keep looking out and forward into what He has for you..."


TobyMac: Scars

We love the fourth single from his album the Elements (following I Just Need U, Everything and The Elements), Tobymac says:

"For the first time in my life I found myself sending ships out of the harbor. Up 'til now our family, our home, it's been the harbor. People I love the most are going out and facing the pain, the struggle and the temptation of this crazy world.I'm very aware of the scars that come with life's journey, but sometimes we insulate those things from the ones we love, our children. So to see them go out there and do this real world it's painful. I wrote this one for my boy. I wanted to let him know that I'm here for him and God is there for him. So lift your head my son to where your help comes from."

We've just added his new single 'Shining Down' to the Life FM playlist, so we thought we'd take the oppertunity to introduce you to the man behind the music!
