“Worship just seems to be the right kind of music for me to make in this season; it’s so true to who I am and my roots,” St. James says of her return. “The foundation of the EP is the idea of dawn—a new sunrise, a new beginning, a new spring. The theme throughout is God’s redemption; new seasons of joy after pain, and hope.”
The album is was produced by a longtime collaborator for St. James, Tedd T. along with Seth Mosley. The EP also features contributions from her brother—For King & Country’s Luke Smallbone—as well as Bethel Music’s Josh Baldwin and Brandon Lake.
Just last month, St. James released the lead single off the EP, "The Battle Is The Lord's," available now everywhere.
“The time away from music has helped me come back with fresh energy,” St. James says. “It’s much easier to go with a formula that feels safe or sure to be received, but I’ve not wanted to do that. I’ve really wanted this project to feel progressive but also really accessible.”
