GRAMMY Award-winning rock band Switchfoot surprised fans with the release of new music this week. “I Need You (To Be Wrong)” can be heard below and is now available to download/stream. Switchfoot shared the heart behind the new song below. In addition to new music, Switchfoot also unveiled today that they will be hitting the road this fall on NEEDTOBREATHE’s upcoming tour.
“You say you’ve got the answers. I say, I think you’re wrong. And you are. At least a little. And so am I. We all have a blind spot — we just don’t know what we don’t know. ‘All along we both were wrong.’ I began writing this song more than a decade ago, during a season of personal friction. Insecurity. Doubt. Fear. Inspired by the tale of Mr. Hyde, asking: Who can I trust? Who am I? Years later, the song remained as unfinished as the questions themselves, but it began speaking to us ways that it never had before. And so we began the process of finishing it. And while we began to unpack the song, the song was unpacking us. Maybe our enemy is not ignorance, but the illusion of knowledge. All along, we both were wrong. I need you (to be wrong)” – Switchfoot
