Of the new release, Joel Smallbone, half of the for KING & COUNTRY duo, reflects, â€œThis record is about how we learn from our past â€“ how we use that knowledge to inform our future. Like a lot of us, our own journey hasnâ€™t always been easy, but weâ€™ve found that you can rise up from the dust, walk away, and dance among the heartache. We hope that the music on this album conveys that sentiment and connects with everyone in a positive way.â€
The albumâ€™s cover image was shot in Iceland, a country that has become somewhat of a centerpiece for the album. While in Iceland the brothers shot the music video for the song â€œPioneers,â€ which was released today, and the song was added to Spotify’s “New Music Friday” playlist. The video features Joel, Luke, and their wives Moriah and Courtney contemplating the Icelandic countryside, which serves as a picturesque version of what it means to carry on within a seemingly desolate and volcanic framework.

â€œWhen life gets difficult, it may be tough to look at things in a positive light,â€ adds Luke. â€œWe found ourselves contemplating many different themes and feelings between our last album and now. Although things may have seemed tough at times, we dug deep within ourselves and found that while itâ€™s not easy to reconcile the past, the voyage ahead becomes substantially clearer if you can.â€
