20 January 2023 – Nashville, TN – Citizens kick off the new year with the fourth single from their forthcoming album, 'Good Ground'. The song was initially inspired by the opening account in the book of John, setting up a Christological lens through which to read the Scriptures: Jesus is the Word. Following from there, the parable of the Sower takes on a whole new meaning when perceiving Jesus being the One sown in our hearts; the hope of the world has been enmeshed into the spiritual soil of this earth.

"We get to participate as gardeners and cultivators through our living testimonies, our stories. This song is a prayer for the ground of our hearts to be soft so that we don’t miss the best thing we have going for us in Christ," Zach Bolen says.





'Good Ground' is good news! It’s a song for those who feel burdened, guilty, and not enough. Citizens invite listeners to trust the gravitational pull of salvation, embrace the goodness of God, and move in that current rather than fighting against it. With compassion and conviction, Zach adds that, "perhaps a song like this would help to mentally and spiritually free people from the toil of thinking that it’s on us to save the world. Jesus already did that."

On a musical plan, 'Good Ground' is an effervescent folky tune. While the band were tracking the song, they recorded Brian [Eichelberger] crumpling paper as a joke, however the effect worked and wound up on the bridge. With their new single, Citizens call us away from a results-based gospel to into perpetual rest.

'Good Ground' is the last single from Citizens' sixth album, 'I Can't Find The Edges of You', which will be released on February 24, 2023.
