Philippa Hanna releases the second single from her upcoming live acoustic EP, ‘Loved Me First’. The song first appeared on her 2020 debut worship album ‘Stained Glass Stories’ as a pop-infused track, which the UK artist now strips back as a dynamic acoustic version.
‘Loved Me First’ echoes with the encouragement of 1 John 4:19, reminding listeners that God’s love isn’t the outcome of being good enough, but it is found in trusting in his goodness. “As someone who always wants to give their best, I can easily fall into the trap of trying to ‘do it all’ perfectly,” Philippa says, “This song is a confession that God’s grace is enough for me.”
‘Loved Me First’ features simple drums, acoustic guitar, bass, grand piano, a mandolin, and a hammered dulcimer. Commenting on the latter, Philippa says “I’m really enjoying exploring the way instrumentation can elevate our expressions of worship,” something she demonstrates beautifully with this new project.
“Loved Me First” is available now.
