Worship singer-songwriter Andrea Olson announces the release of her brand-new single, “You Already Have,” to all digital music outlets Friday, Aug. 6, 2021.
The new song is a peaceful anthem that reflects faith in God’s provision during difficult times. In the chorus, Olson sings, “You are enough, You have no limits / You never run out, Your love is endless,” a refrain she wrote in the midst of the anxiety of 2020.
“Grocery store shelves were empty; everything else was closing down,” Olson recalls. “Nobody knew what we were dealing with. I just felt shaky, to be honest. But the Lord, in His mercy, placed this song idea in my heart as a reminder that no matter what, He has everything I could ever need.”
“Everything about the worship ballad, from the lyrics to the instrumentation, was designed to bring the listener an atmosphere of peace,” Olson says. Piano, cello, synth pads and percussion tenderly carry the declarative lyrics from Olson and her co-writers — top worship songwriters Michael Farren and Meredith Andrews.
“I just want people to be able to sit back, close their eyes, and soak in these truths,” she said. “This song has been my prayer in my hidden places over the last year, and now it’s time to share it with the Church.”
Sharing worship moments with the Church is a huge passion of Olson’s. After her first release in 2013, Olson founded the Overflow Worship Conference for worship leaders at small and medium churches around the country. From 2014 until 2020, Olson didn’t release any music, shifting her energy to the worship community. Then, in 2020, Olson started releasing original songs again, reintroducing herself with the critically acclaimed singles “Monument” and “God Victorious.”
“The songs that I am writing now are so much different than what I would have written 7 years ago because God has grown a passion for the local Church in my heart,” Olson says, “and my songs are inspired by the stories I hear and the prayers that are prayed in the churches I get to work with.”
Olson is gearing up for the eighth annual Overflow Worship Conference, Oct. 8-9 in Willmar, MN. The theme of this year’s event is “BREATHE” — an invitation to rest and be refilled with two days of encouragement and encounters.
The conference kicks off at 7 p.m. on Oct. 8 with Overflow Worship Night — an open-to-the-public night of praise led by Olson and worship artist Hope Darst (“Peace Be Still”). Tickets for that event are just $5 for non-attendees of the conference.
The conference continues at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9, with breakout sessions featuring pastor and author, Clay Scroggins, Mike Harland, and more! Conference tickets are now on sale, and cost $79 each for individuals, $74 each in groups of five or more.
