The Lone Bellow has released I See That Hand, the opening track on the upcoming Mercyland: Hymns For The Rest Of Us, Volume II compilation.
The goal of Mercyland is to illustrate the spirituality of human connection, without attaching a specific religious doctrine. The band’s Zach Williams describes it thus: “The idea originated from a shared memory we all had. Growing up in churches down South, we all had the moment at the end of the service when the pastor said, ‘Every head bowed, every eye closed’ and then started counting hands raised in the air from the reaching out of souls in need of something… The writing teetered back and forth – wrestling with our beliefs, disagreements, and ideas regarding faith – and we ended up with a song at the end of this discussion that was from an honest place.”
Have a listen.
