LOS ANGELES (February 21, 2020)GRAMMY® nominated Hillsong Young & Free announces the release of their brand new single “Best Friends.” Featuring an accompanying live performance video and studio version, the powerful youth anthem is available today. Listen to the song here and watch the video here.

“I think it’s important to note with this song (‘Best Friends’) that we are trying to achieve something different here,” says Hillsong Young & Free’s Aodhan King. “It may not sound like a song for Church, but we believe it’s an anthem for young people who know there’s something missing. Kids who know there’s a level of dysfunction to the culture they’ve been sold and are ready for ‘another way.’”

“Our prayer is that this song propels them on the journey of discovering that the thing they are missing is Jesus,” King adds. “We wrote it with intentionality towards that end…a seed sown into places that our songs have never been before.”

“‘Best Friends’ is an honest account of what we’re all thinking and yet maybe haven’t known how to express,” says Young & Free’s Laura Toggs. “It’s more energetic than ever and feels like the beginning of a new era for us. We’re collectively more excited than we’ve ever been!”

Young & Free continues to play an integral role in reaching this generation for Christ with their revamped contemporary approach. Since forming in 2013, the global youth worship collective has released three highly successful albums and more than 20 singles, acquiring over 438 million YouTube channel views and 812 million plus global career streams (with a 750,000 plus global unit career consumption). With a combined social following of 3 million plus fans, Young & Free has seen six No. 1 career singles and nine Top 5 singles at Hot AC radio. Their debut album “We Are Young & Free” landed in the Top 25 on Billboard 200 while “Youth Revival” garnered the group its first-ever GRAMMY nomination for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album (2017). Their latest single “Every Little Thing” hit #1 at Hot AC radio for eight weeks, making it the longest running #1 for the band.

Most recently, Young & Free kicked off 2020 with a special appearance at the Strength to Stand conference in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., where Kanye West/SUNDAY SERVICE also performed. In support of their new music, the group is currently on the road with Winter Jam 2020, making their career debut on Christian music’s largest annual circuit with featured performances in 25 cities around the nation.
