Today, I AM THEY dropped the third pre-release track from their upcoming studio album, Faithful God, due out October 23 (Provident Label Group). The “Lift My Eyes” lyric video can be viewed below.
It’s been more than two years since I AM THEY – made up of Hein, Abbie Parker, (vocals), Brandon Chase (vocals, guitar), Justin Shinn (keys), and Nicole Hickman (drums) – released “Scars,” the chart-topping and K-LOVE Fan Awards-nominated single from their 2018 album Trial & Triumph. With “Faithful God” and the eleven additional songs to be featured on the new project, there’s a heaviness that’s been lifted and the band has a redefined sense of what it means to hope for the future. Even their moniker speaks to their belief in promises held together by trust, that God is pointing the way forward. For “they,” it isn’t about a singular ambition, but a collective desire for God’s plan.
“That’s what people have connected to with I AM THEY, for being real,” shares Abbie Parker. “We’ve always been upfront with the difficult things we’re facing. The trust that we’ve built helps us be vulnerable with each other and within our songs.”
