Jordan Phillips along with Adam Stark, who make up and lead Apollo LTD, have been committed to writing honest songs that unite, turning the challenges that all humans face into reasons to band together. Released in this season of race relations protests and quarantine, when togetherness is difficult, the song is about reaffirming that humans have inherent value regardless of circumstances.
“We all share the same needs and desires,” perceives Phillips. “It doesn’t matter where we were born nor the color of our skin, our lives have meaning and value. And as we experience this second wave of COVID-19, people are worried about getting sick and dying. A lot of us were struggling before all this, and 2020 hasn’t helped our situations.”
“AA 12 Step and similar programs show how other peoples’ stories help you with your own stories,” adds Stark. “While in community, you are not alone in your struggles. There is hope in shared experiences.”
Available now at digital retailers and streaming outlets globally, “You” follows the duo’s widely acclaimed Out of Body EP that sparked hits like “Gold,” “On The Way Up,” “Heaven,” “Tired of LA” and “One In A Million.” These songs have been heard on outlets like Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19 and shows featured on ESPN, FOX Sports, Comedy Central, NBC and ABC while gathering over 10 million streams and sparking three top 25 Christian radio singles.
