EDITORS’ NOTES

Ah, youth! This group’s optimism and enthusiasm shine through on songs like album opener “Where You Are” and “Falling into You,” both ’80s-inspired electronic love songs that deal in spiritual devotion. The sunny, celebratory “This Is Living” keeps the pace, while a fun, funky side comes through loud and clear on “Only Wanna Sing.” The tempo shifts on “Face to Face,” a breathy ballad that tells a personal story of finding faith. Throughout it all, lines like “you are all my soul desires” reinforce the singly God-focused message.

About Hillsong Young & Free

One of the many groups affiliated with the Hillsong Church in Sydney, Australia, Hillsong Young & Free release worship music with a target audience of teens. Announced in 2012, the group issued the singles "Alive," "Awake," and the Spanish-language "Vivo Estás," all in 2013. Filled with dance beats and teen pop anthems, their debut album, We Are Young & Free, arrived later in the year, featuring production from Hillsong veteran Michael-Guy Chislett. In early 2016 they released their sophomore album, Youth Revival, which peaked at number two on the Billboard U.S. Top Christian Albums chart and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album. A year later they returned with an acoustic rendering of the same album called Youth Revival Acoustic. The single "P E A C E" appeared in 2018. ~ David Jeffries
